Ahmedabad-based IT professional Abhay Jani develops app to track Corona patients

Ahmedabad: With the Ahmedabad civic body making public details of coronavirus patients “in larger interest” of citizens, an Ahmedabad-based IT professional Abhay Jani has developed an app using the Google Maps feature to provide the exact location of the patients so that people can stay away from such areas.

With over 130 coronavirus cases reported from Ahmedabad so far, people here are using the new app to assess locations of such patients.

The app started operating from Tuesday and garnered nearly six lakh views within a day.

On the map, one can clearly view the locations of such patients in areas like Kalupur, Memnagar, Ramdev Nagar, Ambawadi, Bapunagar, Bodakdev, Astodia, Jamalpur, he said.
