Two sisters, Biobele and Belema Briggs, in Port Harcourt have developed a mobile application that will help to curtail the spread of COVID-19 as their solution for the TECHNOVATION CHALLENGE 2020.
Salvage is a mobile app solution that helps in containing the widespread of coronavirus in Nigeria and the world at large.
Their app attempts to solve the problem of CONTACT TRACING of any confirmed victim by leveraging NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. Once two persons make contact, their devices instantly exchange IDs that are sent to the database. These data can later be used by the Disease Control Agency to trace contacts of any confirmed case.
The mobile application SALVAGE also has other unique features that enables its users to check their risk factors to Covid-19, report suspected cases, book a test for COVID-19, learn about the virus and many more.
The sisters, Biobele and Belema Briggs were mentored by Mr Somkenechukwu Mamah, a tech enthusiast and founder of CODE AMBASSADORS ACADEMY in Port Harcourt.
According to their mentor, Mr. Somkene, the mobile app is apt as it will help to curtail the spread of this deadly virus in Nigeria and the world at large. This goes a long way to show the ingenuity and innovative ability of Nigerian children when given the right grooming.
What else is there to say than to give a big thumbs up to the girls and their mentor.
