India has taken a wonderful initiative to keep track of the infected patients amid the Coronavirus outbreak by launching the Aarogya Setu app. The entire globe is suffering from the deadly pandemic. It is getting worse day by day and there still no cure to it.

However, there’s only one solution to contain the spread of the virus and that is social distancing. Many developed nations like Italy and the USA were too late to implement a nationwide lockdown. Nevertheless, India was quick to act upon the mass spread of COVID 19.

In fact, India has left behind leading tech firms by launching its Aarogya Sety App solely for the purpose of Coronavirus containment. India announced lockdown pretty soon and also developed an app to help keep track of the infected. The app Arogya Setu has earned recognition from the World Bank as a useful measure to contain Covid19.
