COVID-19: Ogun deploys Mobile App for residents’ self-assessment

ABEOKUTA—THE Ogun State Government, yesterday, rolled out a mobile application for residents of the state to self-assess themselves against the Coronavirus pandemic.

The State Government had in March launched a real-time concurrently updated mobile application for health workers which has been deployed to all government and private health facilities across its 20 local government areas to aid information sharing.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker, the new application, christened: Ogun COVID-19 Assessment, is not for diagnostic purposes but it is meant to determine the risk of resident’s exposure to the disease.

Coker said: “This mobile application is an assessment tool for the individual members of the public on the basic symptoms of Coronavirus. It can be downloaded on Google play store.

The App is not for diagnostic purposes. ”Responses are monitored on a dashboard at the Ministry of Health which will flag high-risk individuals as red who are promptly followed up by the State Epidemiologist.”
