If you haven't installed the Covid-19 tracking app, Aarogya Setu, it will be installed on your smartphones soon. According to some reports from the smartphone industry, this was confirmed by a smartphone manufacturer and manufacturers' association for information technology (MIT).
According to related sources from the smartphone company, the government had asked the companies to pre-install the app on the phones, but this has not been possible as production has been stopped. However, production is expected to resume soon and work on the project will begin soon.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the citizens to use the Health Seth app to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Earlier this week, during a meeting with all state chief ministers, Modi spoke about popularizing the app and demanded that more people should download it. He also mentioned how South Korea and Singapore were successful in contact tracing through apps.
India has made its own efforts through the app, an essential tool in India's fight against the epidemic. He also spoke about the possibility of the app becoming an e-pass. In an official statement, Modi said the Aarogya Setu App will help people travel from one place to another.
More than 8 crore people have downloaded the app, officials said. The Aarogya Setup App set a record for fastest app ever to reach 5 crore downloads.
