Cebuano develops mobile app to help trace locations of CoVID-19 PUMs or PUIs

It seems like our mobile phone obsession will finally be of help to the society.

“WeTrace” is a mobile app that helps the Department of Health (DOH) trace people who came into contact with persons suspected of carrying the novel coronavirus (CoVID-19).

This mobile application, which was developed by Cebuano IT expert Eddie Ybañez, has made it possible to have location-tracking, patient-mapping, case-reporting, alerts, and messages.

“Maayo ni siya nga app kay makatabang kaayo sa atong goal nga containment kay ma-trace na man dayon ang location sa PUMs (persons under monitoring) or PUIs (patients under investigation),”

– Cebu Gov. Gwen Garcia

WeTrace app features:

Geo-coordinates: give users the idea on the suspected persons’ whereabouts and who they came in contact with.

QR Code Generation: used for tracking so there will be no personal information divulged. It will serve as the device ID number that will be the only identification trace of every user.
