During the meeting with chief ministers, the Prime Minister “spoke about popularising the Aarogya Setu app to ensure downloads in greater numbers.”

Referring to how South Korea and Singapore got success in contact tracing, PM Modi said, “based on those experiences, India has made its own effort through the app which will be an essential tool in India’s fight against the pandemic.

He also referred to the possibility of the app being an e-pass which could subsequently facilitate travel from one place to another,” the PMO said in a statement.

The App, called ‘AarogyaSetu’, joins Digital India for the health and well-being of every Indian. It will enable people to assess themselves the risk of getting infected with coronavirus. It will calculate this based on their interaction with others, using a cutting edge bluetooth technology, algorithms and artificial intelligence.

How Aarogya Setu app works?
