Corona virus continues to wreak havoc in India. Meanwhile, news has come that in view of the danger, the Indian government is working on an app these days. Through this app, efforts will be made to keep people aware about this dangerous virus. According to the report, the name of this app will be CoWin-20, which is currently in the trial phase. The main objective of this app is to motivate users not to travel to Corona virus affected places. With this, they will be able to track the people affected by this epidemic around them. Apart from this, it has also been told in the report that this app will also track for the users those people whom they had recently met and who later became suffering from this disease. However, it is still not clear when and how the government will launch this corona virus tracker app. Currently, another Corona virus tracking app of the Government of India is available on Google Play Store for Android users.

News18 According to this, this app is being created by NITI Aayog and soon it will be made available for download on Google Play Store and Apple App Store. According to the report, CoWin-20 app has been made available for some users.

Purpose of this app

1. Monitoring community spread of coronavirus through user location.

2. Alerting users when they have been around a person suffering from coronavirus.

3. This app will send notifications to users about people who were close to the user and have now been found COVID-19 positive.

The beta version of the CoWin-20 app has also been used by The Next Web. He found that the government will obtain users’ data regarding corona virus through Bluetooth. The report claims, “This app checks via Bluetooth whether you have gone within 6 feet of a person suffering from corona virus.”

The report further says that a map-like feature will be provided in this app, which will keep tracing the location history of the user. “Thanks to Map-19, for the last 14 days, I have been able to see all the places I visited and all the people who were 5 feet away from me,” the report mentions.

Next Web suspects that some features present in the beta version of the CoWin-20 app will not be included in its final version. It has been said in the report that this app will first ask for permission to access location data, due to which questions may arise on the privacy of the user.

It is noteworthy that in view of the threat of Corona virus, a lockdown of 21 days has been declared in India.
