As COVID-19 develops, citizens start having doubts: Do I have coronavirus symptoms? Have I been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed? STOP COVID19 CAT allows the monitoring and tracking of the symptoms through the app. The user can control the symptoms’ evolution and follow the guidelines and advice for each situation.
The healthcare system will monitor each case from the data that the application sends and, when necessary, will activate the medical emergency services.
The application conducts a series of questions about possible symptoms: whether the user has a dry cough, suffers from continuous fever and for how long and, finally, whether the user is experiencing any difficulty breathing that could indicate they have entered a stage of pneumonia and therefore require hospital care.
The user can use their health service number on their health card.
The information introduced is transferred to the healthcare system and is transmited – encrypted – to the Emergency Services and Civil Protection. In case it is deemed necessary, they will activate the services considered necessary depending on the person’s health condition. It allows to correlate the current condition of the user to coronavirus symptomatology and in consideration of their medical records and an assessment of the risk.
This application aims to map the cases which could be positive for coronavirus. This will help authorities identify possible focal points of infection, assisting with the epidemiological control of the pandemic in the territory.
The application can be used in Spanish, English, French, Catalan, Mandarin and Arabic.
