DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF CORONAVIRUS CONTACT TRACING FOR NCDC USING ANDROID PHONE

ABSTRACT

The main thrust of this study is on Automated Covid-19 Contact Tracing Using Mobile Application. The study was anchored on four research objectives which are; (i)to investigate how the automated Coronavirus patient contact tracing using mobile application. can be used to curtail the spread of COVID-19 (ii)To examine the  related architecture, models, technologies, and challenges of existing COVID-19 contact tracing approaches (iii)to develop, design and test a mobile-based system for COVID-19 contact tracing and screening and (iv) to validate the developed system. The database was implemented using MySQL Database Management System (DBMS). The reason for MySQL database is because it is simple to implement and there is plenty of documentation on it. The study conclude that Contact tracing and screening approaches exist but these approaches are faced by significant challenges as discussed in this dissertation. The incidence of COVID-19 will not decline in the absence of effective and organized contact tracing and screening. The mobile-based system comes in handy to positively impact COVID-19 control efforts specifically in COVID-19 contact tracing. Based on the findings it was recommended thatthat the Nigeria Government should recognize and embrace novel technologies for COVID-19 contact tracing and screening. The National COVID-19 program can also consider supporting the development of dedicated teams or units that facilitate novel methods for COVID-19 contact tracing and screening to complement the work of field health worker/ epidemiologists.
