Corona Tracer BD is an initiative by the ICT Division and DGHS with the objective of bringing the people of Bangladesh together in the combined fight against COVID-19. The technology is powered by Shohoz Ltd.
This app utilizes Bluetooth signal to understand if you are near another Tracer app user. It will help you in identifying whether you are at risk of COVID-19 infection, by checking if you have been in recent contact with an infected individual. If your case seems risky, you will be able to seek medical help at the earliest and go into self-isolation.
It also has the following features:
- Information on various topics such as symptoms, what to do in case of suspected infection, etc.
- Locating nearby health and testing units.
- In case of a suspected infection, the citizen can check if the symptoms are compatible with COVID-19's, and if so, they will be instructed and sent to the nearest basic health unit.
- Official news area of the government for viewing the latest statistics on the pandemic.
