How does it work?

The App (Aarogya Setu) works as a normal tracker device. For Example, If I have downloaded it In my Phone, it will scan for nearby devices with Aarogya Setu installed and will connect to it via Bluetooth. Once the connection is established it will exchange the data between devices and if the other person has tested positive for Covid-19, the app (Aarogya Setu) will show me an alert, and this will allow the government to trace potential cases of Covid-19.

Self-assessment in Aarogya Setu :

The Aarogya Setu app has a Self-assessment test. It asks users about their travel history, their current health, and whether they are showing any of the symptoms of Covid-19?. whether they were in touch with any Covid-19 patient or not? Based on the answers given by the user, The Aarogya Setu app suggests further steps like self-isolation, home quarantine, etc.

Aarogya Setu As e-pass

Recently our prime minister Shri Narendra Modi shared the idea of e-pass through the Aarogya Setu app. The app can be used as e-pass and it can give better transparency for the same. For example, if I apply for the pass to travel from my house to my shop, it can be used as an e-pass instead of a traditional one. It may be used to accurately track the people who were advised to home quarantine or similar.
