New App Helps to Fight Covid-19 in Sierra Leone

Evelyn Lewis and his software company, SBTS Group, developed the Health Outbreak Manager (HOM) software which consists of an app and a comprehensive suite of tools that help collect and manage data for users and COVID-19 responders. The technology was developed between April and June 2020 and is an upgrade on the Ebola Operating System (EOS), an app developed in 2014 also by the same company and had been successfully deployed in Sierra Leone and Liberia during the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak.
