Corona virus infection cases have crossed 20 thousand in the country. At the same time more than 600 people have died. The government is quarantining people after the infection is confirmed. Many people are being self-quarantined, many people are being quarantined in the hospital under the supervision of doctors, but many are fleeing from the quarantine.That why government has plan to make special smartband.

How Smartband will  be used in corona virus situations ?

The government is preparing for ristbands to keep an eye on such people. This ristband is very much like a smartband which will have features like locking and tracking body temperature. The government has given information about this on Wednesday. The purpose of preparing smart wristbands is to track the quarantined people and help those who supply essential health services.

It is being said that the government has ordered thousands of wristbands to be prepared, although the exact figure has not yet been revealed. The company, named Broadcast Engineering Consultants India, will introduce wristbands for hospitals and state governments by next week and work with Indian start-ups to build them. The wristbands will also have an emergency button through which users will be able to seek help.

Company Chairman George Kuruvilla said that the wristbands are likely to be rolled out in May. The wristband will have a database of location of people quarantined. Let us know that before this, Hong Kong has used similar Ristbands. Hong Kong has also used wristbands to monitor people’s travel abroad.

Significantly, earlier, the government has launched the Arogya Setu App which alerts people about the infection of corona based on location. Apart from this, you can also know how much you are at risk of corona by giving symptoms by this app. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to the countrymen to download the Arogya Setu App. After the launch of the Arogya Setu app, more than 60 million people have downloaded so far.
