Te app would be available on Android and iOS app stores

The app will help to: 
1. Follow-up on those who are in quarantine and ensure their permanent presence at home or hotel during the period.
2. Official bodies can reach as quickly as possible the persons suspected of being infected and provide the necessary health care.
3. Will alert if coming in contact with infected people.
