You’ll get to track your health and even get COVID-19 test results on your phone using this health app.
The Ministry of Health and Prevention, Abu Dhabi Health Authority and Dubai Health Authority have jointly launched an app named ALHOSN UAE.
The health app is free and is the latest national initiative aimed at supporting the government’s efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
ALHOSN UAE is the third health app related to COVID-19 to be launched in the UAE. STAY HOME and TRACE COVID are the two other health apps previously launched.
The latest app is named after Abu Dhabi’s historic fort and allows individuals to benefit from services developed in the country, even including receiving COVID-19 test results by phone.
The app will also track those who have been quarantined to make sure they adhere to the instructions and are avoiding contact with other people.
Abdul Rahman bin Muhammad Al Owais, Minister of Health and Prevention, explained that the app harnessed the latest mobile phone technologies to help control and contain the Covid-19 virus. He stressed that the UAE government will spare no effort in maintaining the safety and health of all citizens.
He also said that all people in the UAE must download the app, and encourage their families and friends to do the same.“We can contain this virus only if we all act together, each one giving the others protection and peace of mind,” he added.
