What is STOP COVID 19 CAT?

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.

What questions does the app ask to help with the diagnosis?

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.
