Mangaluru: To keep track on home-quarantined people on a real-time basis, a 'COVID-19 home-quarantine beat tracker' app has been launched and is being used in Belthangady taluk.

I-Search, a Mangaluru-based IoT services company has developed the app, which enables Asha workers, ANMs and police constables who have been tasked with the work on monitoring the home-quarantined people. They can track their location on-site and send.

Belthangady MLA Harish Poonja said that the app will help keep track of 220 people who are home-quarantined in the Taluk. It captures the geographic location of the mobile user's logging-in data. If the area has poor internet coverage, data recorded will get uploaded to the server once they come into the network coverage area, he added.
