The Commissioner for Health, Dr Tomi Coker says Ogun State Government has deployed a mobile application for residents of the state to undergo assessment on an individual basis regarding COVID-19 infection.

This is coming a month after the state launched an updated mobile application for health workers which has been deployed to all government and private health facilities across its 20 local government areas to aid information sharing.

She explained that the new application  Ogun COVID-19 Assessment is not for diagnostic purpose but to determine the risk of residents’ exposure to the disease.

Coker who explained how the application works, said responses would be monitored on the State Ministry of Health’s dashboard.

She said,

“This mobile application is an assessment tool for the individual members of the public on the basic symptoms of Coronavirus. It can be downloaded on Google play store. The App is not for diagnostic purpose.

“Responses are monitored on a dashboard at the Ministry of Health which will flag high-risk individuals as red who are promptly followed up by the State Epidemiologist."

The commissioner further urged the residents to take advantage of the mobile application, while she assured them that the Dapo Abiodun-led administration was putting measures in place to contain the disease.
