The Ministry of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan (MDDIAI) together with the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan (MH) has developed an Ashyq application for monitoring and analyzing data on the epidemiological situation in the country, Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to the press service of the ministry.
"MDDIAI and the Health Ministry, together with the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs, are conducting a pilot among business representatives whose activities are limited during the period of quarantine measures (spa centers, fitness centers, cinemas). Now, to visit these places, you must scan a special QR code and present at the entrance. The application will display the risk rating, which is divided into red, yellow, blue and green statuses," - said in the message.
It is noted that the red status indicates the restriction of movement, compliance with a strict regime of home isolation for persons undergoing outpatient supervision.
Yellow - partial restriction of movement. The user is registered in the PCR database as a contact: visits to grocery and hardware stores, pharmacies are allowed no further than 500 meters from the place where the patient observes the home isolation regime.
Blue. There are no restrictions on movement for this status, except for places where PCR is mandatory (for example, at the airport).
Green status means that there are no restrictions on movement and this user is indicated in the database as having passed PCR testing with a negative result for COVID-19.
"Displaying these statuses will enable the business to continue its activities and not endanger visitors. In the absence of a smartphone, the application has a function for employees who control the entrance to the premises, who can check the status of the visitor by means of the IIN or scanning the barcode located on the ID card.
The pilot will allow in the future to determine the timing of the replication of the Ashyq mobile application throughout the Republic of Kazakhstan for entering public places (shopping and entertainment centers, shops, restaurants, cafes, stations, airports, etc.)," the department concluded.
Currently, the Ashyq mobile application is available for download in the App Store and Play Market.
