The main objective of this application is to aid in stopping the spread of coronavirus pandemic, through determination of infectants location for the past 14 days. The propose idea translate to a solution for individuals to incognito self-monitor their movement. This strategy could help the governments condense and curb the spread of the virus in at least two approaches. Altogether with keeping in observance users’ privacy. Due to the mode of dispersal of the computations, the user geographical location data doesn’t leave one’s mobile device/phone, unless identified by authorities as infected.
Once someone is diagnosed with coronavirus disease, they have an epidemiological inquiry. With our app, not only we can speed up this process, but also make its result more reliable. During the inquiry one should provide their location from the last two weeks. However, an average person can recall only 4 days. Thanks to our application position can be determined precisely. As a result it replaces vague memories with exact time and location. Thanks to it, the right people can be moved to quarantine, allowing life to keep going.
Moreover, if someone has been tested positive, their data can be published in an anonymous way. It is later transmitted to other users’ devices where their own path is compared with the path of the infected one. If the paths are close enough(below 0.5 m distance) at some time point, the user is notified that they might have had a contact and any symptom should be taken seriously. Only points involving contact are shown to the user so that it is impossible to detect who the infected person was.
Data gathered by users who are not infected does not leave their mobiles. However it allows them to get notified whether they had a contact with a sick person. This data can also be used in other ways. Imagine you are suspected of staying in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, but you have our app and you can prove that you were somewhere else.
Our program also gathers stats shared by sick ones to show risk of being infected with respect to place. To maintain privacy, we do not show paths but only risk depending on the area. This data can also be used by people who do not use our app to check whether they have been in any of the dangerous areas.
