All Vietnamese people are able to declare their health status via a NCOVI mobile app introduced to public on Monday afternoon.


 This is the latest effort of Viet Nam in the fight against the COVID-19 which has spread to more than 100 countries and territories with 111,332 infections and 3,879 deaths.

The app was made at the request of Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam, head of the Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.
With this app, Vietnamese people can install it on their mobile phones and then provide their personal information as requested.
After installation completed, citizens can update their daily health status and they can also provide information to the best of their knowledge about cases suspected of having the COVID-19 in their residential areas.
Data collected through the app will help the nation’s health sector to identify who needs medical assistance in the fastest and most effective manner, said Deputy PM Dam.
The app also serves as an official channel for competent authorities to disseminate the COVID-19 epidemic situation as well as health recommendations to citizens.
