Encouraging the use of Bluezone application to prevent and control Covid-19 epidemic
Earlier this week, the Prime Minister suggested that people must install Bluezone application on smartphones to trace Covid-19, protect themselves and their families.
Many people have received messages from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Information and Communications asking them to install the Bluezone app on their smartphones since the end of July. On social networks, many groups and influential people have also been urging people to download this application. Therefore, the app's downloads on iOS and Android have skyrocketed in the past week.
Bluezone is the name of a COVID-19 early warning application using Bluetooth technology on smartphones to identify safe areas for users.
When users install this application, their daily activities and community contact will automatically be recorded. In particular, all close contacts within a distance of 2 metres are automatically saved.
In case of detecting an infected person, that person's data will be entered into the system, then transferred to all devices in use. The system will automatically compare and analyse the data of the infected person with the contact history saved on the Bluezone system, thereby alerting other users if they have been in contact with the recently infected patients.
