The national COVID-19 prevention and control app PC-Covid Viet Nam, was made available on App Store and CH Play for smartphones using iOS or Android from September 30, developed from Bluezone.
Technology has not only helped to connect hospitals together but also linked doctors with those need advice, and disadvantaged people with those who can assist them in a bid to drive back the COVID-19 pandemic together.
Information about Covid-19 vaccination, patients and travel permits will be integrated into the VNEID mobile app, which can be used as a Covid green pass when HCMC eases its mobility restrictions.
The vaccination management platform is the first national technology platform shared by ministries, branches, local authorities and relevant parties to join forces to fight Covid-19.
The data on electronic health declaration and entries and exits at public points taken via QR Code scanning have been put under control by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC).
Some cities and provinces have seen 35-40 percent of their population downloading the Bluezone app. However, the number of active accounts is not high.
Although the VHD, NCOVI and Bluezone apps have helped people make health declarations, there are still loopholes that allow people to avoid the declarations.
With many variants and outbreaks, Covid-19 is expected to be a long-term struggle requiring the contribution of the entire society.
Instead of using the Bluezone app only as a supporting measure, local authorities have been advised to use the app as a major solution to trace sources of infection.
Many Vietnamese companies have developed IT applications for COVID-19 prevention and control and online learning during the pandemic.
