Our response to the coronavirus COVID-19 disease pandemic:
The CoviGuard App, powered by Mipha was developed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak which is now a pandemic.
The Mipha App has been in development for other disease and pest epidemics for the past 3 years, and has served various academic and research roles to date, but with the advent of the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19 it has proven to be ready ahead of its time in its ability to rapidly contribute towards managing the pandemic.
Core to the app’s value proposition is that it allows real-time notification from stakeholders to users of the app, about key information relevant to the general public. Notifications of new policies or regulations that have been announced from government, and useful government sanctioned information about the disease. This will assist to stem the rampant social media networks of unsanctioned content, which is contributing towards panic in the population, the so called “infodemic”.
