Detection of COVID-19 Affected Cases by Engaging Mobile Phone Service Providers 

This article is to present detection Technique for COVID-19 affected persons to avoid Community Spread. In this article, an attempt is made for effective and efficient detection of CORONA positive cases by State Governments as it will provide accurate and timely information and shall also overcome the threat of CORONA on 80% asymptomatic persons as quoted by ICMR.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is illness caused by a novel corona virus now a days also addressed as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The COVID-19 virus spreads through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, many research organization ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments developing a procedure that makes it possible to immediately and dramatically increase worldwide testing capacities for detecting COVID-19. There are many issues for testing COVID-19 positive cases like limited testing kits, shortage of well equipment based labs, experienced staff, non-disclosure by affected persons, asymptomatic cases etc.

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. An illness which presents with three main acute symptoms: fever, a deep, dry cough and a shortness of breath which can become quickly life-threatening. The main list of acute symptoms at this time is actually quite short and can appear anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure to the virus, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Any person found CORONA positive is asked about his history of last 1-15 days and he may or may not recall all the persons to whom he met in that period. Recently ICMR states that 80% of CORONA affected are asymptomatic and it will be a big threat to the community.

These 80% persons might have come across number of persons in daily life and affected persons with week immunity. Before opening of lockdown, it is very important to trace and track down all such cases, as once the lockdown is lifted, it may prove fatal for the nation as a whole. By involving experts of mobile phone service providers all State Governments should monitor mobile phone movements of all such already traced affected persons during the period of incubation. Data of mobile phones of other persons who came in closer proximity of less than 1 meter with that affected person, be retrieved. By taking CORONA samples of all such persons who came in closer proximity of less than 1 meter, threat of asymptomatic corona positive cases, non-disclosure by affected persons can be minimized.
