The Kingdom of Bahrain’s health authorities have launched the ‘Be Aware’ app, which aims to support efforts to contain the Coronavirus (COVID-19) by advancing contact tracing efforts and raising awareness of active cases within the Kingdom.
The app utilizes location data shared by users to alert the individuals in the event they approach a location where an active case has been detected, or if they were in close proximity with an active case.
The app will also track the movement of quarantine cases for a duration of 14 days, and ensure they abide by quarantine regulations and active cases and will provide contact tracing updates.
The highlight of COVID-19 developments and the latest recommendations issued by the Kingdom’s health authorities will also be published.
The authorities asserted that as citizens and residents, everyone has a responsibility to safeguard the safety and well-being of all.
The Government has urged all citizens and residents to download the app in order to protect themselves and their families as well as to support national efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
