The Chhattisgarh police developed the app ‘Rakhsa Sarv’, with the help of Noida-based startup Mobcoder, which enables them to track the quarantined people through Google Map. The purpose of launching the app is that a large number of people are kept in-home quarantine, and so it is not possible to keep each one under surveillance on a regular basis.
Details of the home-quarantined people are being fed in the app’s dashboard. The quarantined person will have to upload a selfie in the app every hour which will specify his/her location. Police teams have started installing the application in the phones of those kept under home quarantine and so far, over 50 per cent of such people have been covered.
A similar mobile app has been developed by the Mohali Police in Punjab named ‘COVID Control’ to keep an eye on home quarantined people to ensure quarantine protocols are being followed properly.
