Corona Virus COVID-19 Tracer Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

As soon as a person found out that he has the virus or he was physically in touch with a person that has the virus or a person that died with the virus, he should self-isolate himself at home for 14 days.  He also should use the SOS button to send Emergency tracing notification to any individual in his mobile contact list that he thought contacted him in the past 14 days.  If he cannot remember, then he should transmit it to all his contacts by tapping the SOS emergency tracing button.

Sometimes the infected person is disoriented, having fever, weakness, and gasping for air and barely can say his first name and sometimes cannot even stand.  In such conditions, all he has to do is open his mobile and tap the SOS button and it will automatically post the draft notification he prepared in advance to all his contacts.

When one of his contacts receives an SOS notification he will self-isolate himself at home for 14 days from the time he was in close contact with the infected individual.  Likewise, he must use our App to send an SOS tracking notification to all or some of his contacts to inform them everything about the infected person and when he received an SOS from him.    Inform them about his health condition and when was the last time he contacted the infected individual.  If one of his contacts had contacted him within such a time frame, he will also self-isolate himself at home for 14 days from the time he was in close touch with him.  He also must transmit an SOS to his contacts and so on until no one in the chain had contacted anyone that had the virus or anyone who had contacted a person that had the virus and all are self-isolated themselves at home. The total number of people contact tracing the virus may be in the hundreds.

Your government cannot do it, Only you can do it as you succeeded in using social distancing and staying at home to slow the spread of the virus.

 Corona Virus COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected individual coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. The spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) of symptomatic person (person already have the virus and showing the symptoms) or in close contact with asymptomatic (a person already infected but not showing the symptoms of the virus). On average it takes 5–6 days from when someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to show, in other words, it takes 5-6 days for a person to change from asymptomatic to symptomatic, however, it can take up to 14 days. People with symptoms (symptomatic) should self-isolate themselves and seek medical help if needed until cured. Asymptomatic people without symptoms who are otherwise healthy should self-isolate themselves at home for at least 14 days from the time they contacted the infected person and use our app every day to check if they have the virus or not.

Contact tracing is contacting anyone who came in contact with any Corona Virus COVID-19 infected person (symptomatic person) or a person who was infected but not showing symptoms (asymptomatic person) or a person who contacted a person who died with Corona Virus COVID-19 in the past 14 days and ask all such individuals to guarantee themselves (self-isolate themselves) at home for 14 days from the time they came into contact with the virus carriers, keep away from other people and make sure that they did not develop a Corona Virus COVID-19 symptom.

Contact tracing is one of the interventions that have been used successfully in China to effectively control Corona Virus COVID-19 outbreaks. Those in close contact with the virus carriers above mentioned are at higher danger of infection, and of potentially infecting others. Closely watching such persons for 14 days from the last day of exposure will help that individual to get care and treatment and will prevent the further transmission of the Corona Virus COVID-19 to others.

We must do the following

  • Practice social distancing including staying at home and keeping at least a 2-meter distance from anyone having Corona Virus COVID-19 or not.
  • Testing, Testing, Testing, to anyone who has Corona Virus COVID-19 or came in contact with a person who has CoronaVvirus COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
  • Do a thorough Contact tracing using our App.
  • Isolate the infected people so that they will not infect other people

China’s authoritarian regime has an edge over democracies because it can mandate top-down measures like lockdowns and digital tracking of infected people’s movements and contacts. They actively deploy technology to collect data on the virus’s progress and efforts to contain it, including tracking those who are infected and their contacts. They also recruited an army of hundreds of thousands of people (volunteers) and ordered them to check anyone and everyone in the locked-up area building and check each apartment for any signs of infections also checking every passing pay temperature etc. In short, they succeed because they did comprehensive tracing.

 Our government is playing catch up with the virus and having a hard time testing and treating the infected people. We do not have enough testing kits or equipment to do it anyway, and for our government to do successful full-contact tracing like China, they need to hire an army of millions of people to do it which will cost billions of dollars.

Contact tracing is a complex and arduous process of interviewing the patient, listing down everything they did in the past 14 days, and identifying every person they had come into close contact with. Yet, it is a crucial step to detect further cases and prevent the further possible spread of the virus. 

On the other hand, when someone contracts the virus he will be out of breath and gasping for air and hardly can speak his first name. He caught a cough, has a fever, difficulty breathing, and pneumonia in both lungs. How could anyone ask him whom he contacted and when?  He will not be able to name them. All governments like to do a successful contact tracing like China, but can not and could not do it. Nevertheless, anyone can trace the virus using our App.  All he has to do is simply use the SOS button to start tracing the virus.  Using our App will help you succeed in contact tracing as you succeeded in using social distancing and you will also help the world to eradicate the virus from our world and SAVE AND FREE YOURSELF AGAIN.

Ask yourself, can our government do the social distancing and force you to stay at home?

The answer is NO, ONLY YOU CAN DO IT.

Ask yourself again can our government do the contact tracing?

The reply is NO ONLY YOU CAN DO IT.
