Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 10) -- A website and mobile application was launched this week for a more real-time tracking of suspected and confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines.
Those with Internet access can create an account on "StaySafe.PH" to help the national and local government units keep track of the health status of the public.
During the online registration process, users will be asked if they are feeling any of the COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, cough, fatigue, muscle pain, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, and diarrhea. The user also has to record the medical status of the other members of the household.
After filling it up, the Staysafe.ph platform will generate a result indicating good health, mild symptoms, moderate, or severe depending on the number of symptoms he or she is experiencing.
The data will then be sent to a "heat map" in the platform’s admin dashboard which will then show the areas and the number of people exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
The government's National Task Force Against COVID-19 partnered with software solutions company MultiSys to create the online tracker.
