GIMPA School of Technology Students' Association Develops Mobile App to Support Gov't Fight Coronavirus in Ghana
It is no longer a nightmare in Ghana as it was in the early days of the outbreak of the pandemic disease, Corona Virus in China. The outbreak of it has taken many lives and also given others sleepless nights as it keeps spreading like a harmattan fire across the length and breadth of the world.
Since the first case was confirmed in Ghana it keeps increasing abnormally and this somehow has created panic and fear among the general public for some time, until yesterday President Akufo Addo allay impressions.
In a wake of this, GIMPA IT students’ association namely; GIMPA- School of Technology Students Association (SOTSA) has developed a mobile application called ‘COVID-19 ALERT GHANA’ to support the government of Ghana in a fight against the Corona Virus.
In more detail, the COVID-19 ALERT GHANA mobile app is purported to give credible updates on Coronavirus amidst the misinformation of the Virus that is been spread on various social media, regularly given the public the necessary safety educational tips on how to prevent it and what to do with suspected cases.
Also, the App will help persons with suspected symptoms to report cases to the Emergency center for pick up. The App will enable the Health Ministry to send emergency alerts through push notifications to the public.
The app also helps to keep track of confirmed cases both local and international.
However, the Government of Ghana, Information Ministry, Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Service are therefore called upon to collaborate with the aforementioned association to make this laudable initiative work, as this will drastically manage the coronavirus situation in the Country.
