With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the country has been seeing an ever-increasing need to provide citizens with access to updated information and essential health services. With this in mind, India’s Government of India (GoI) launched Aarogya Setu – a mobile application designed to bridge users with essential health services and keep them informed on their locality’s current COVID-19 situation.
The app comes equipped with several features such as Discovery and linking of health records, Consent Management for sharing health records, Self-Assessment test based on ICMR guidelines, Registration of Covid-19 vaccine registration, Downloadable Certificate for receiving Covid-19 vaccines and a completely revamped User Interface & User Experience (UI/UX). Visually appealing yet highly informative dashboard provides users with real time updates about their region’s Coronavirus situation as well as nearby testing centers or hospitals which have tested positive/negative cases.
Moreover, this intuitive app provides constant reminders to its users about preventive measures against the virus such as washing your hands regularly or using face masks when going out in public. It also helps them stay up to date with latest government recommendations regarding traveling or working from home. Furthermore, Aarogya Setu APK assists its users in finding contacts who have tested positive for coronavirus so that they can take precautionary measures before hand if needed.
Overall, Aarogya Setu is an innovative initiative taken by Government of India which successfully serves its purpose of providing citizens easy access to trusted information apart from connecting people with nearby healthcare resources for further assistance if required. With constantly evolving user interface and unique functionalities like self assessment tests & contact tracing solutions being added at regular intervals; it is certainly paving way towards unifying India's fight against Coronavirus pandemic!
