Uses of Aarogya Setu Application



Social-Distancing has become the new norm in the ongoing time. In such circumstances, people need to stay updated about the pandemic no matter wherever they are. The Aarogya Setu Application was developed by the Government of India because of the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. It was created to spread awareness about the pandemic and many other things such as:

Tell people if there are any covid cases near them at different distances like- within 500 meters, 1 km, 2 km and up to 10 kms from their existing location.

  • Allow people to self-assess themselves and tell them about any symptom.

  • Tell people how many Covid-19 testing laboratories and hospitals are there nearby. 

  • Shows Covid-19 Updates such as a number of confirmed cases, active cases, recoveries etc.

  • It even has an option to call a helpline in case of any emergency.

  • It also shows the various safety guidelines to take care of ourselves from the pandemic. 

  • The app uses contact sourcing to notify you when a person you met several days ago tests positive for the infection. With this facility, a user can quickly report the contact and undergo testing.

  • As per the statement by PMO, the app could also be an e-pass facilitating travel from one place to another.

  • The app is also equipped with a chatbot that answers all the basic questions on coronavirus disease or COVID-19.


The Aarogya Setu app is very useful in the ongoing time, so we should all use the app and Stay Safe and fight this virus off together by doing our part. It has also become an integral part of our life.

Remember the following quote by Daniel Bæk which has become very true in the present scenario-

“Tech will transform from something we actively use to a more seamless integrated experience that is ‘on’ all the time.”
