Ghana Institute of Surveyors Develops App That Detects COVID-19

The Ghana Institute of Surveyors has developed a software that can detect and trace all persons who have tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

The Institute says the software can be installed on all phones including non-smartphones.

Speaking at a presentation of a GHS50,000 donation to the COVID-19 Fund, President of the Institute, Dr. John Amaglo said the software if adopted by the government will help in the fight against Coronavirus.

According to the surveyors, the app performs three functions. It can trace the affected people in real-time and it can also be used for monitoring and evaluation.

“We have booked an appointment with the technical team so that tomorrow we will do a presentation and if it is adopted we should be ahead of the virus.”
