Mobile app developed for quarantined people

Saw Saw Pyaw, an application for quarantined people, has been developed by collaboration of the Ministry of Union Government Office, Ministry Health and Sports, Ministry of Transport and Communications and youth tech expert Ko Htoo Myint Naung (Technomation).
The mobile app is based on other mobile apps for COVID-19 developed from other nations such as the Republic of Korea and adapted to Myanmar’s situation and requirements designated by the Ministry of Health and Sports.
The app is designed for people returning from abroad who have to file compulsory reports of their return, imposing quarantines, receiving early treatment and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in communities. The app also has a system for health officials to monitor people under quarantine and people submit their health conditions via the app.
The application will be available in Myanmar and English languages so that both local resident and expatriates in Myanmar can report on their health condition. Mobile operators will be providing free SIM cards and 1GB of Internet data for people under quarantine using the mobile app.
The mobile app will have a hot line number to contact health officials. A database of all registered and quarantine people will be used to incorporate appropriate action plans.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
