COVID-19: Diagnostic aid
We know that it is often difficult to diagnose COVID-19 because the first symptoms very often resemble those of the flu or other illnesses. In Cameroon, the number 1510 has been made available to the population to answer questions that everyone may have about the disease or have a first diagnosis if in doubt.
However, this solution can be quite complicated in the case where several people wish to have a first diagnosis at the same time. To overcome this difficulty, the IT team of La Mater Service participated in the design and produced with the help of health professionals, students, and other Cameroonian volunteers a web application (available at address www.lamater.tech/covid19/ )
which allows all those who think they are infected to make a first anonymous and free test after which a recommendation (based on those proposed by the Ministry of Health and WHO) is made to them. This application also allows you to get in touch directly with healthcare professionals and have the list of examination centers available.
We just recall that the symptoms of COVID-19 are mainly the following:
- Sore throat
- Dry cough
- Runny nose
- Breathing difficulties (severe cases)
In all cases, it is strongly recommended to respect the barrier gestures (to protect yourself and others), namely:
- Wash your hands constantly
- Cough or sneeze in his elbow
- Use single-use tissues
- Respect safety distances
