Summary

nCoV 2019 health monitoring app

Description
Basic requirements: 1. Let users send their health status either manually or automatically using app sensors(temperature, mic etc) 2. Each user must have unique/proven id. 3. Non-invasive location tracking. 4. Tracking and informing users of resources such as food, hygiene products, availability of medications to alleviate symptoms based on location. 5. Very invasive mandatory alert/notifications/reminders for users created by other users based on their sensor activity. For example, if someone is to go to an infested zone other users(will alert them on real time) will advice against that. Like a community watchdog kinda thing but not big brother level shit. What do you think? Is it helpful in anyway? What would you like to add or do in a certain way?

    You would need extra health sensors, regular phone sensors could never measure the correct temperature e.g.

    @jonii Then manually reporting at a reasonable interval might work.

    Still sounds like a privacy nightmare really.

    @PrivateGER @Ranchu getting quarantined is more of privacy threat tbh. Anyways, it might not be worthwhile afterall.

    @AshesOfTheSun You can forget ever doing such a project the way it's planned in the EU anyway. GDPR will properly fuck you up.

    Lolwut. Either it knows exactly where you are, or it doesn't.

    @endor on android I think you can ask for "coarse location" that gives you a network-based location instead of GPS.

    @endor Sorry, I meant users input their own location. I apologize for my bad english.

    You can already montior and store your health data in either Google or Apple Health, they also give you nice graphs. If you want to measure Temperature, SpO2, Heartrate, Bloodpressure, etc you need extra sensors. Many smartwatches actually have an SpO2 sensor but most of them (afaik) don't use it.

    As for location tracking... well the Austrian Red Cross has just released an app (developed by accenture) that lets you manually establish an handshake with people that are in the same room as you are and you'll get notified if one of them gets infected and is stating so in the app and if you've been in contact with this person in the last i think two days or so. The app had a budget of 2 million euro.
