Aarogya Setu App: How to Download and Use Aarogya Setu App?

Aarogya Setu application is an application developed by the Government of India to combat the spread of the coronavirus and keep citizens informed and safe.

The world has witnessed the coronavirus outbreak of 2019 and how it has affected our lives. The outbreak of COVID-19 led to a worldwide pandemic and global lockdowns. Not only did the virus affect our emotional and physical well-being, but it also caused financial losses.
 

To overcome disease, the Indian government developed an application to curtail the deadly virus spread. The application was named Aarogya Setu.
 

Launching the application aims to create awareness about the coronavirus and how to prevent it from spreading. The COVID app in India was the fastest application to reach 50 million downloads in just 13 days. The application was a good step in the fight against COVID-19.

But now, the application has become a national health application with around 217 million users. The application helps begin the digital health journey by generating ABHA (Ayushman Bharat Health Account) numbers. This enables you to receive your digital lab results, prescriptions, and diagnoses from trusted healthcare professionals and service providers without hassle.
 

In this blog, we will learn all about the Aarogya Setu app uses.

The application alerts people about COVID-19 cases in their area. Further, using the social graph provided by location, users can know if they come into contact with anyone who might have tested COVID-19 positive.
 

The Aarogya Setu application has similar working to how Google Maps utilised technology to identify the high traffic areas. The application updates users about the COVID-19 cases in their area. Besides this, the application also educates users about the risks and advisories of COVID-19.

Further, users can generate their ABHA number using the Aarogya Setu application with the latest update.

How to Use the Self-Assessment Feature?

After the Aarogya Setu login, you must take the self-assessment test for Covid-19. To assess this feature, tap the "Self-assessment test" button; then, the chat window will open with a questionnaire. It is a general questionnaire that hardly takes 5 minutes to complete.

The test begins by requesting information regarding symptoms, such as a cough, fever, etc. The next question is whether you have any illnesses like diabetes, heart problems, etc. Further, there will be questions if you have communicated with somebody who recently tested positive for COVID-19.
 

The assessment will show the findings as Low Risk, which is in Green colour, Moderate Risk in Orange colour, or High Risk in Red colour and then recommend a suitable course to follow based on the responses to the questions.
