Kayode Fayemi Governor of Ekiti state on Thursday unveiled the state’s COVID-19 response hub, a Geographic Information System- based application, that would help to curtail the spread of the virus.
Fayemi, while unveiling the interactive website in Ado-Ekiti, said the state was adopting technology to step up its fight against the deadly virus.
The governor disclosed that the response hub would support government’s efforts at mapping out the spread of the virus and identifying itinerary of positive cases in order to curtail incidence of community spread.
He affirmed the confidentiality of users on the platform, saying the hub would also serve as a platform for residents to take a self-assessment test to determine their risk of the infection.
The governor also said people with symptoms of the virus could also report directly to the right channels for quick response without going to the hospital and endangering the lives of others.
The governor said the hub can be accessed via smart phones and other internet powered gadgets on www.covid19.ekitistate.gov.ng,
