With the initiative of helping the government to prevent and curb the spread of coronavirus outbreak, a group of entrepreneurs is developing an app named 'Q-App' or quarantine app to monitor and track in-home quarantine people. It is expected to come live this week.
Two-wheeler rental startup, Bounce co-founder Vivekananda Hallekere, Delhi-based services startup, Urban Company co-founder Abhiraj Singh Bhal, Kerla-based Startup Village's angel investor and entrepreneur Alok Mittal and Sanjay Vijaykumar are the core members of Q-App development at India's innovation capital, Bengaluru.
Q-App will provide the live-tracking of the in-home quarantine people by enabling every individual to self declare self-quarantine. Moreover, it will also provide the information of the areas with an excessive number of COVID-19 positive cases highlighted by color-coded information. The technological solutions will be developed in 4 versions, which will include mobile and web-based apps.
Udhyam Learning Foundation founder Mekin Maheshwari said, Q-App is to allow every individual to self declare their home quarantine, and by using this information government can build a zoning strategy. In India, there is an urgent requirement for such technological solutions as people have been violating home quarantine, and this situation would ultimately give rise to the threat to India's already weary public healthcare system.
This entrepreneur group is presently engaged in building the Q-App. Besides, they are also planning to create content and circulating the information in vernacular languages along with the solutions for medical supplies.
The Bengaluru-based peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing platform, Vokal co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna said, Q-App is a tool that will be effective with the number of inputs. One of the features of this app would be mapping the movements of a COVID-19 infected patient.
Explaining the features of Q-App, Aprameya said that the app would send push notification to everyone throughout the day, expecting the in-home quarantines to respond and will ensure that the person is at home. The live tracker would match with the home location. At present, the global number of COVID-19 positive cases reached 341,561 with 14,748 deaths, and India surged to 425, including 8 deaths.
