COVID 19 CONTACT TRACING: Using Tech in the Fight against the Fatal Pandemic

The Government of Ghana is relentless in containing the further spread of the Coronavirus pandemic. In addition to advising citizens to observe the outlined safety protocols and providing numbers to call in emergency cases, the government through the Ministry of Communications has introduced the Covid-19 Symptom Tracker.

The Covid-19 App tracker is an easy to use digital tool that is designed to help people self-report their systems and assess their health symptoms for Covid-19 risk.

The app is available for iOS, Android and USSD *769# users which ensures universal accessibility.

The success of this app is highly dependent on getting the masses aware of and the utilization of the app. This implies that a mass media campaign is needed to create the right awareness and get Ghanaians to use the app.

The media launch is on Monday, April 13, 2020, by 9:00am, at Gh One TV Studios, Platinum House. The MC is going to be the delectable Kwame Sefa Kayi, with performances from ShattaWale, Kwesi Arthur and Kwami Eugene. Broadcasting platforms for the launch includes: Gh One TV, Joy News, TV3 and UTV.
