New 'covid layer' will be added to Google Maps, which will show how many cases of Corona are in which area

While the coronavirus pandemic and climate change are inherently different issues, they share two important characteristics: both are global crises that threaten the lives of millions of people. As of Today the number of coronavirus infections approaches 100,000 people worldwide & increasing in India very rapidly.

In continuation to initiative taken by the Maharashtra government to reduce exposure of COVID-19, Suspected should undergo home quarantine for few weeks. These home quarantined people are supposed to stay home / hospital. Unfortunately many of them are not following these guidelines.

To stop people doing this, we have developed technological solution (Android application & website) to monitor home quarantined people with GPS system from corporation office itself.
Alongside to tracking, we can generate different reports which you need to share with health officials every day.

  • New update to Google Maps Android and iOS users can get this week
  • Maps will show data from 220 countries that support Google Maps

New cases of corona infection are not taking the name of prevention.  Meanwhile, tech giant Google has announced a new feature for its popular mobile app Google Maps.
