EHTERAZ is a contact tracking Android application for citizens, residents and visitors of Qatar. The government can identify areas of high infection rates, and people may receive notifications in case of exposure and contagion risks.
The State of Qatar developed this tool for tracing COVID contacts of their nation to reduce the spread of the virus. By sharing anonymized signals via Bluetooth with devices nearby, the system creates a history of users in proximity. If someone close enough to you later got infected with corona, the tech alerts you and everyone else who might have been exposed about their risks.
Additionally, EHTERAZ provides a QR code confirming virus or vaccine status for safe communication with the community. Moreover, like COVID Tracker Ireland, this app delivers official health announcements, social distancing measures and pandemic statistics. It is worth noting that for maintaining the confidentiality of members, the utility collects a minimum amount of personal data.
