Post lockdown management system for COVID-19

The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, 2019 (COVID-19) has created a global health crisis that has had a deep impact on the way we perceive our world and our everyday lives. COVID-19 is highly contagious and mortality is also very high, this makes the disease all the more dangerous.  One of the major prevention is to maintain social distancing, which would smash the chain of the expansion of the disease. Lockdown has been implemented to implement this idea but we can’t keep lockdown in a country for a very long time otherwise the country’s economy will drastically decline. Post lockdown many things will change around us. And after the daily routine resumes post lockdown, the public transportation system will play a crucial role, as it is most commonly used by people and to prevent the further spread of covid-19 cases, social distancing needs to be maintained at all public places. So there has to be proper management for public transportation which can allow its use, without further producing more covid-19 cases.

We all are aware of the “ArogyaSetu” application which keeps the record of people’s health conditions and makes us aware of the nearby COVID-19 patients, but it doesn’t monitor whether the social distancing is being maintained or not which is equally important to stop the spreading of the virus. So, to cover those gaps there should be an application that can monitor whether the social distancing is being maintained by the public or not in public transportation, and additionally, this application should also notify the public as soon as they violate social distancing.
