The crisis of the coronavirus is assuming a number of challenges both at the level of society and technology. Have of applications, for the realization of diagnosis and care available in case of emergency is essential, and one of the goals of technology is to facilitate as much as possible the work.

The self-diagnosis is not usually a good practice without the necessary information, and because of this, the official sources (such as the Ministry of Health in the Telegram) that are more essential than ever.
The government has launched an application that is available both on the web as on Android and iOS. The objective of this application is to be able to enter our contact details to the health authorities can get in contact with us, you can perform a self-assessment (which the government itself recommends us to do if we believe we have the symptoms), and a series of instructions and recommendations.
The first disappointment of this application reaches us to know that even though it is the official application of the government, its coverage does not extend to the whole country, but only 5 autonomous communities:
- Castilla-La Mancha.
- Principality of Asturias.
In the application you will have to enter a valid phone number, as well as our personal data. Optionally, you can activate the geolocation and push notifications.
Moreover, the application includes the same questions of diagnosis that we have been seeing in other applications to discover if you have symptoms of coronavirus.
The app is now available in Google Play, although you can only use it if you live in one of the 5 autonomous communities. If you live in Madrid, Catalonia or the Basque country, the application we recommend to go to their respective applications official.
