The world seems to have become a dangerous place to live in. What started as a small virus outbreak in the Wuhan city of China has now become a global Pandemic. Yes, more than 150 countries today are battling against this COVID-19 virus. Lacs of people have died and it doesn’t seem to end anytime soon.. Though casualties are highest in countries like UK, USA, Italy, Spain, etc.., India has seen a relatively lower death rate than most countries in the west. But it is too soon to assume anything considering the huge population here and the limited tests being conducted to identify the affected and the suspects.
Anyways, the fight is on. Together we can and we will defeat this menace. The government of India has also pulled up its socks and is chalking out several drastic steps to mitigate the dangers of this silent killer. Aarogya Setu App is a step in the same direction.
What is Aarogya Setu App?
To put it simply, Aarogya Setu App is a useful little program to help people access their health conditions in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak in India. Using this app, people can easily know if they exhibit any coronavirus symptom in their body. This is made possible by answering a small questionnaire in the app. On the basis of the answers submitted, a person is notified if he or she is on high or low risk from the virus. Since the notification is received on the basis of answers provided, it is expected that people take it seriously and answer honestly. Otherwise, the app fails in its purpose!
How Does Aarogya Setu App Work?
There are just 3 steps with Aarogya Setu App. Below listed are the steps:
- Install the app
- Enable Bluetooth and Location services
- 3. Set Location sharing to always
Bluetooth and location services are enabled to track COVID-19 suspects. You will be alerted if someone you have come in close proximity of, even unknowingly, tests COVID-19 positive. The app alerts are accompanied by instructions on how to self-isolate and what to do in case you develop symptoms that may need help and support.
If everything goes well, you will be greeted with the message “You are safe”
You can retake self-assessment test anytime just to make sure you are on the safe side. The best way to remain safe is social distancing. Nothing else seems to work better against this pandemic.

Well, Aarogya Setu App is a step in the right direction. In these times of uncertainty, Aarogya Setu App can act as a good source of information and protection from COVID-19 if used seriously.
Though the app seems to be a little high on resources, it still is a reliable option for those who care about themselves and others in the current situation. I am surely recommending it to those who really care.
