Chandigarh, March 28
People in the state can now get curfew passes for emergencies, report mass gatherings, know home quarantine patients and foreign-returned travellers and do a lot more on the ‘COVA Punjab’ app, which will also soon provide facility to request for groceries and other essentials, as well as consultation with doctors.
Several states have adopted the unique coronavirus alert (COVA) app, which is underway for implementation in two provinces in Canada. The app was launched earlier this month to disseminate official information about Covid-19 pandemic. The app, launched by the state government along with its innovative Digital Punjab Team, is available on Android Play Store and iOS App Store. As of March 28, it has more than 4.5 lakh registrations and more than 20,000 views per day. The application is available in English, Hindi and Punjabi. — TNS
