San Francisco/Bay Area, March 1, 2020 - Today, Relola, a data sharing and mapping provider, announced that it is using its QuantaStat technology to provide the public better ways to share Coronavirus status and symptoms to help public health officials identify potential outbreak conditions and take preventative measures.
The launch of the free to use www.stopcoronavirus.relola.com site is targeted at public safety and potential harm reduction, as reports of new cases of the coronavirus continue to grow across the United States.
On the site, people from around the world are encouraged to share their status, whether they are experiencing symptoms or not. By reporting symptoms, exposure, and recent travels, officials will be better equipped pinpoint new contagion areas in advance. As health statuses are anonymously reported, local and federal agencies can review, educate, and react to the data in real time. Citizens worried about potential coronavirus exposure can zoom into planned travel areas to discover any newly reported hotspots.
Heather Sittig, CEO and Founder of Relola states, “When our team realized that the Relola platform could be used to stop the spread of the Coronavirus and save lives, we felt a responsibility to make this resource available to the world. In a matter of hours we developed a software configuration and website that enables people everywhere to update their status anonymously. By providing a safe environment to report health statuses, we can all work together to stop this virus in its tracks. ”
