Aarogya Setu is an Android app developed by the Government of India to help stop the spread of Coronavirus in this South Asian country. The app works by connecting to the GPS the citizens' smartphones in order to detect possible movements of people infected by the disease.

Using Aarogya Setu is really simple but allows the citizens of India to contribute by using this type of technology. All you need to do is to install the app in your Android and then activate the Bluetooth connection and location services. With this data, the app can alert you and others if you come across or have contact with a COVID-19 carrier.

It should be noted that the location data you provide is only shared with the Government of India to conduct a prevention study. You can rest assured that your privacy will not be affected while cooperating with the Indian Department of Health.

The app also includes a lot of data about the virus such as treatment and the symptoms. This information is really important since it can help you perform a self-diagnosis from home in order to avoid the collapse of the health care system in a high populated country like India.

Aarogya Setu is an excellent app for the prevention of COVID-19 based on the technology implemented by other countries such as Korea or Singapore with its TraceTogether app. Undoubtedly, geolocation can help greatly with keeping confirmed patients under control and protecting the non-infected population.
