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.
