Angola: COVID-19 - Student Creates Self-Diagnosis Application

Luanda — A web application called "Covid-19 Ao Api" for self-diagnosis of the new Coronavirus (Covid-19) and providing information about the pandemic was launched this week in Luanda by Angolan Computer Science student, Ravelino de Castro.

The program, according to what Angop learned and certified today, has statistical data on positive, suspected, recovered and deaths caused by the pandemic in Angola, in addition to prevention tips recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

It is an interactive computer application that allows self-examination through basic issues related to the symptoms of the disease and other symptomatic manifestations, assigning a considerable probability to the result obtained at the end of the test (on the spot).

"The statistical data of the application rely on the interministerial commission of Angola, using the information directly from this source of the Government of Angola.

It is available in 4 languages and can be used on any electronic device with internet access "- explained the inventor.

Ravelino de Castro (programmer for over five years) said that in addition to these resources, other programmers can use the platform, if they want to use the same statistical data to display on other systems, via a mini API available within the " Covid-19 Ao Api ".
