COVID-19: Ogun deploys mobile app for self-assessment

The Ogun State government has deployed a mobile application for residents to undergo assessment on an individual basis in the event of being infected with COVID-19.

This comes 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.

The Commissioner for Health, Dr Tomi Coker, confirmed the latest development in a statement on Tuesday.

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

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

“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,” she said.
