In my state Kerala, India. The government regularly released route maps of Covid patients through social media to make people aware of the travel history, if they have come in contact with the patient. But I thought it can be made more efficient.
What it does
Anyone can can enter a place they have visited recently with date and time, Our application will compare it with patient travel history in our database and show if any match occurred or not. And If the user feels that he/she might have been in contact with the virus, they can report themselves along with their name and contact details. The health department will get a notification and can take necessary action to support the flagged users to take precautionary measures. Another option is for users who can't remember their travel history and has a large history can upload their google map location history file instead of manually giving in their place visits.
Advantages of our approach of implementation
How I built it
Patient Databases should be provided by the government or authorized health workers. And should have all the location history stored in a cloud server "Firestore", which securely provides only the locations of various patients to each user, thus ensuring the privacy of the patient.
Challenges I ran into
Google map history can only be downloaded manually for each user, which might not be understandable to everyone. So provided another option to manually type in their location history and time to match with all patient history.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We have successfully implemented and it is ready to serve form as long as we have a patient database provided by the government. Ensure privacy to both ends without tracking anyone.
What I learned
teamwork and Github. And every idea is significant, so listen to your partners and involve them to get the best output
What's next for Covid Map Trace
In later stages, the data can be used to reach conclusive evidence on vulnerable travel characters and locations when an epidemic like this spreads. So can make decisions based on that for future
