DOT Desk:  To prevent spread of coronavirus, Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) have launched a mobile app aiming to monitor the home-quarantine of people who came into contact with Covid-19 positive patients, reports The Daily Star.
 The mobile application “Stay Home, Stay Safe”, prepared by Inovace Technologies, was inaugurated by CMP commissioner Md Mahabubor Rahaman yesterday evening at CMP Headquarters. Police officials said the app has GO-Fencing technologies, which will ensure the current location and status of home-quarantined people. Apart from that, the app has a notification system and it will send notification and alert to both home-quarantined people and the web-based admin panel if they try to go outside of their designated areas.
 At the same time, the web-based admin panel will convey the information to the concerned police stations or monitoring units to take necessary steps in this regard, said the police officials. CMP officials said police are now under huge pressure but their time will be saved along with ensuring proper monitoring through the app. Apart from that, police personnel are able to avoid close contact with home-quarantined people, ensuring their personal safety.
