Covid-19: Institute Of Surveyors Develop Software For Detection, Tracing On Smart Phones
The Ghana Institute of Surveyors has developed a software that has the capacity to detect and trace all persons who have tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.
The Institute says the software will be installed on all phones including non-smartphones.
Speaking at a presentation of a GHS50,000 donation to the COVID-19 Fund, President of the Institute, Dr. John Amaglo said the software if adopted by the government will help in the fight against Coronavirus.
“This is the domain of surveyors. We have come up with an application that will be used for contact tracing and it has three functions. It will trace the affected people in real-time. It will be used for monitoring and it will be used for evaluation. We have booked an appointment with the technical team so that tomorrow we will do a presentation and if it is adopted we should be ahead of the virus.”
