What is corona-detectives?
As the de-escalation phase progresses and as long as there is no effective vaccine against covid 19, there will continue to be unidentified infected people. It is here when government pressure is set not so much on the number of deaths per day but on tracking and locating new cases of infected people. The figure of the corona-detective, generally a person coming from the private who works with the Public Administration, seeks to help locate these remaining cases of infected, avoiding outbreaks.
But how does a crown-detective work? In different countries like Singapore or China, he can be a quite an intrusive figure, people who can track conversations on social media, using apps that analyze millions of conversations to find a key conversation that can reveal that someone is infected.
In other cases, a corona-detective may be someone who gets confused in waiting rooms, airports, trains, buses … looking for people who can show visual symptoms of coronavirus infections. The mission? Find remnants to quarantine and avoid possible outbreaks.
There are other initiatives such as AsistenciaCovid19 the self-diagnosis app of the Spain Government to stop the coronavirus: for voluntary and unified use throughout Europe.
Tracking by private and voluntary Bluetooth
The app is voluntary installation, so not all users will carry it on their mobile devices, only those who decide to install it. But in addition, the activation of geolocation is also optional. In other words, you can install the app and deactivate the geolocation option before starting the self-diagnosis test.
This application uses the Bluetooth connection of mobile phones to detect nearby devices of other users that would be marked as “contacts”. If a member of this chain of contacts becomes infected, other people at risk of suffering the same condition could be easily located.
We hope we have helped you understand the figure of the corona-detective and ways to control the virus. At Yupcharge we do our bit and make our solutions against Covid 19 available. For example, a thermal scanner that incorporates an authentication and access control system, with a system for measuring facial temperature. It can quickly and accurately detect the human body temperature and generate an alarm when the temperature is too high.
