How geoHealthApp can help stop the spread of COVID-19
Friday 27th of March 2020 – GeoHealthApp GmbH, today launched a Betaversion in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, UK and USA that has the potential to help stop the spread of COVID-19!
How does it work?
People first install the app, and the phone starts recording their location anonymously. No registration is required.
If any user reports receiving a positive COVID-19 test, the app uses the location data but also Artificial Intelligence to determine who came in close contact within the previous 14 days and warn those users via an intuitive traffic light system.
If the traffic light is green, normal precautionary measures, such as social distancing or hand washing, are enough. When the yellow or red light shows, the user is alerted to be particularly careful in contact with risk groups and if necessary, take a corona test.
Additionally, the interactive map shows areas with high infection rates, so the user can avoid these areas. No contact is the best protection against infection. Please help to break the infection chain!
GeoHealthApp received the support from HEMEX, whose regulatory experts helped to register the software as a CE-certified medical device under the European Medical Device Regulation, and also make sure that all data are handled in full compliance with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
GeoHealthApp is totally free of charge and can be downloaded for iPhone and Android starting next week.
