Thai virus tracker app intended to highlight hot spots


The central Thailand province of Chachoengsao has launched Mor Channa, a COVID-19 tracking mobile phone app, to help individuals assess whether they are in a high-risk area for COVID-19. Energy Absolute PLC, one of the companies that helped develop the app, believes that the app's tracking system will provide real time data to the Ministry of Health's Department of Disease Control for analysis, and will keep people out of high-risk areas (indicated on the app's map in red) and therefore help keep hospitals from becoming overloaded.
