Uttar Pradesh's defence against the coronavirus disease
In a bid to boost the COVID-recovery in Lucknow and other state districts, the Uttar Pradesh government is all set to launch a mobile application for tracking all the COVID-19 test centres. This digital assistance will enable the people and those in need, to locate COVID-19 test centres within 5 km radius of their location. People can install the app from Playstore or the Directorate of Medical & Health Services website, post the launch on Saturday.
Besides location, the app will provide all other information regarding the centre timings, GPS location on map, cost of tests, contact information and other details about the test centre. The application will further help in keeping a surveillance on the growth of coronavirus, its control and treatment, while also providing the people with the most relevant information, with respect to proximity and promptness.
The test-centre locator application will provide the users with district/city level data, strengthening the treatment infrastructure, right from the grassroots. Moreover, this digitised system will help the people to get immediate and authentic information, approved by the district administration, which will prevent them from falling prey to fraudulent organisations amid the raging pandemic.
