NDO – After six days of implementation, military-run telecom group Viettel on February 7 finalised a mobile application, ‘Suc Khoe Viet Nam’ (Vietnam Health), which was ordered by the Ministry of Health (MOH) to support the prevention and control of the acute respiratory infection caused by the novel coronavirus (nCoV).

Suc Khoe Viet Nam’ is the only official information application of the MOH that helps people to self-assess their potential risks to the nCoV infection, keep them updated on the latest situation of the epidemic and equip themselves with prevention and control knowledge.

The app also allows users to search for the nearest health facilities to register information in case of infection risks, and on guidelines to isolate and report the suspected cases.

Sharing on the process of developing the product, Nguyen Manh Ho, General Director of Viettel Business Solutions Corporation, said: “Viettel focused all its resources to turn technology into one of the disease prevention and control solutions in the present period.”

The ‘Suc Khoe Viet Nam’ app is available on Android and iOS platforms for both smartphones and tablets.

The content of the application provides information on the nCoV infection map in Vietnam, including the display map, provinces, cities and the number of infection cases. It also provides official information on the epidemic, as well as recommendations from the specialised health facilities. In addition, the application has a multiple-choice questionnaire to help users self-assess their risks of nCoV infection.
