Aarogya Setu, a government app for tracking coronavirus patients is now compulsory in Noida and Greater Noida. The government’s aim is to curb the spread of COVID-19 and this will be possible only when more people download the app on their smartphones.
“If people download it instantly, we will let them go. We are doing this so that people take the order seriously and download it. But if they do not download it after repeated warnings, we will have to take action,” said Kumar.
Officials state that if a person is caught without the app, he or she will be asked to download it immediately. If the person downloads the app, he or she won’t face any charges. Additionally, if a person has internet issues, he or she will be provided with hotspot to install Aarogya Setu. If there are other issues such as low storage, the person’s number will be taken, and the police will contact him or her to confirm that the app is downloaded.
Police further made it clear that if anyone complains of not having enough mobile data to download the app instantly, they will be providing them with mobile hotspots so that the app can be downloaded instantly. Police will conduct sudden and surprising checks in crowded areas like market areas and grocery stores.
