To protect the health of all, and to limit the spread of the coronavirus in South Africa especially the health care workers.
We have the best people for this enterprise, we have the skills to develop the technology, and now it's your turn to connect with all South Africans to fight the COVID-19 outbreak.
Once every set period of time (currently once an hour), the application downloads a file with an anonymous list of locations in which diagnosed COVID-19 patients have visited (patients who were examined by the Department of Health and underwent epidemiological investigation by the various tools at the Department's disposal) from the Department of Health's cloud (including dates and times) and then the application will cross-reference these locations against your locations (including dates and times) that are stored in your device.
Information about locations and times is cross-referenced within your device, and not on the cloud. Your locations are not sent to the Department of Health, unless you have authorized the Department of Health to receive this information for purposes of help in identifying people who have been exposed and who must enter home isolation as soon as possible. Should the application discover that there is a possibility that you have been at the same place and at the same time as a diagnosed patient, you will receive a notification from the application with the details of the location and times where you have been exposed to a patient.
Upon receiving the notification from the application, it is recommended that you take precautions and verify this information at the Department of Health's website where these lists are published, as well as maps with the locations where verified patients stayed. If you have any doubts regarding the precision of the information provided by the application, you may consult the Ministry of Health COVID19 National toll free number regarding points of exposure.
