An app to take care of all Argentines

The national government launched an application that allows a coronavirus self-test and access up-to-date information on the progress of the pandemic.


Among so many  fake news  that are going around, the only certainty we can get it from official information. The national government launched an  application for mobile devices  that allows citizens to take a   coronavirus self-test  . It also reports on developments in the progress of the pandemic and on the measures taken by national authorities to contain it.

coronavirus app

The app can only be installed on phones with  Android operating system  and can be downloaded from Google Play. However, there is also the possibility to perform the test online  from any browser  (on the cell phone or on the computer) by entering the  official site .

Once we enter the app, we find an extensive conditions document that you need to accept in order to access the upload of personal data. The next screen displays a map with the geolocation of the phone and a question about the current health status of the user.  If the answer is “bad,” a question form about possible symptoms (body temperature, cough, sore throat, respiratory distress) is opened and the person is asked to report if they are part of any of the risk groups (by age, pregnancy, or pre-existing illness).

Taking into account all the answers, the application again asks for a contact phone number and the address of the user's housing. If this is a  suspicious case,  this data will be used by the authorities to contact the person.

If when starting the app, the user responds that they  are in good health , they will be given recommendations and official news about the pandemic.

An easy way to take care of ourselves and help authorities detect possible positive cases of COVID-19.
