Local pandemic map VS COVID-19
One-line solution summary:
A digital public map that can display the movement of confirmed COVID-19 patient before the diagnosis of x hours or days.
Pitch your solution.
This project is about solving the current Coronavirus crisis of the world by developing a digital public map that can be used to trace potential cases and precaution tool for specific area where there is confirmed COVID-19 case.
A digital public map that can display the movement of confirmed COVID-19 patient before the diagnosis of x hours or days so that people take precaution when going to that area and trace potential cases like in buses where the patient may transmitted to people he/she does not know.
This will help the process detection of Coronavirus easier because the map application can be accessed by the public to view if their movement had risk and take precaution before they transmit it to others.
What specific problem are you solving?
In March 11/2020, WHO declared that Coronavirus (COVID-19) is categorized as a pandemic outbreak originated from China. Starting from that point many countries or cities have closed their boundaries, restricting movement from country to country or city to city. This is because the best way to control a pandemic outbreak is isolation and solving the problem in a confined way. After you isolate cities, the next critical question is how do you trace potential cases? How can people know they are potential cases before having symptom for the COVID-19? For example, person who has been infected with COVID-19 without his/ her knowledge may travel from location A to B using a specific bus/ buses in a specific time and day in a specific city. The peoples who also travelled using that specific bus/ buses in specific time and day are potential cases but there is no way anyone could know that because that bus travels multiple times even if the buses have unique numbers. And the bigger question is that how do you give priority for testing peoples who wish to be tested if many number people apply having limited testing capacity?
What is your solution?
Digital public map that display the movement of confirmed COVID-19 patient before the diagnosis of x hours so that peoples take precaution when going to that area and trace potential cases like peoples who have traveled with that person without knowing each other. When there is a confirmed case for the COVID-19, that person is kept isolated in a medical treatment center and that person will be given a form to fill her/ his movement in very specific data like where she/ he went, what time, means of transportation and even transportation specifics like bus number. This data is fed to digital public map for the public to see and report peoples who traveled using that transportation means within that specific time especially if there is specification on where the person has sited on that bus. Then the public see this and anyone who meets these criteria via the digital map will report and if there is confirmed case among the reported peoples, they also will fill the same form and update the digital map. The summation of these data will fill information gaps and work the whole city as a unit leading better precaution and better detection of COVID-19.
Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?
The intended target of the project is for digital map companies especially for Google Map. This is because it will be easy for Google Map to integrate it in their system. They can call the map as “Google pandemics” and develop a secure map that can only filled by authorized person with user name and password for every city on the world. The graphic of the map will look like the following diagrams taken from public transportation of Google maps.
Explain how the problem, your solution, and your solution’s target population relate to the Challenge.
This project aligns with the challenge because it focuses on the Coronavirus crisis of the world.
The system will not have an incorrect data because it will be filled by authorized personal strictly based on the data from the patents
