About the Project

Description

Coronavirus Alert App supports local and national governments in the fight against the spreading of COVID-19 following the World Health Organization instructions.
It is a digital platform for desktop and mobile devices to prevent, inform and control the spreading of COVID-19. The platform combines the use of GPS, historical data from citizens, and official sources to generate six key components:

For Citizens:
Alerts: it allows citizens that are tested positive for Coronavirus to inform their network using Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Telegram or WeChat.
Risk Checker: it tracks where citizens were in the past 14 days and who they met. It shows how many people tested positive around the places they visited. Integrated with Calendar apps.
Panic Button: it allows citizens to check if their symptoms correspond to COVID-19. Users can contact hospitals around them without leaving the self-isolation location.

For Governments
Trends Tracker: a dashboard with live stats about the spreading of the virus, forecasts, and simulations about how Coronavirus Alert App is helping to flatten the propagation curve.
News & Education: a news library and repository informing about health (symptoms, best practices, prevention), macroeconomy tendencies (tendencies, forecasting), and microeconomy (SMEs, local consumption, remote work tools).
Public Announcements Channel: a direct communication channel between public authorities and citizens. The administration platform to send official announcements to the population.

How far along is it

We have a full minimum viable product that was launched on Tuesday 16th. The day after it was adopted by the Bolivian Government and there are other 4 governments that expressed interest in using it.
We set a 21-days development plan to put together 5 new functionalities aiming to provide a more complete solution for public authorities.
