No matter what you do for a living, whether you work in business development, an entrepreneur, teacher, engineer, freelancer or maybe a student like me – you are affected by the pandemic because of covid-19. And just like what they say, no one is safe until everyone is safe.
Honestly, there is no specific person that inspired us in pursuing this venture because everyone from different walks of life are affected by COVID-19. Local transmission of COVID-19 is very rampant because we are not fully aware of the COVID status of the people we encounter with (such as vaccinated, unvaccinated, boostered, etc.). Among the measures the country has implemented are through vaccination cards and health declaration forms. But aside from the hassle it brings, is that it comes with the risk of using your personal information in accomplishing crimes.
We aim to solve these problems through COVID T.R.A.C.K. An application that would detect the COVID status of the people you encounter with and also shares your COVID status (vaccinated, unvaccinated, boostered, had COVID, with symptoms, etc.) within a specific location.
To test the feasibility and the demand of our proposed venture, we conducted a survey participated by 183 Batangas City citizens ranging from ages 16-60 years old. 70% of these participants would like to improve the current covid monitoring and tracking process hence, we will be pursing this venture.
There are 315,390 people within our target age range for Batangas City alone. Hence, applying our venture to the whole country Philippines having 90.8% of the population as smartphone users would provide a large market size. The application would also prevent the 3,668,505 confirmed COVID cases from rising.
COVID T.R.A.C.K. is an application that would display the COVID status of the people around you within 50 ft radius, real time.
Early adoptions would be our beta application users which are mostly college students and working groups who are usually outside their homes that would aid in the development of the application.
Competitors of the application are existing covid applications which include the following famous and known applications from App Store and Google Playstore Care19- a location logging application, GuideSafe- an application that allows anonymous contact tracing and COVID Alert for contact tracing using Bluetooth. However, our product includes all of this functions in one application, making it your go-to application for a user-friendly, legitimate and real time approach in battling COVID-19.
Thank you for reading this article! I hope you enjoy it and see our idea is feasible. Have a nice day ahead!
