Mobile App on Ebola debuts

A new mobile application known as Ebola nationwide report centre has made a debut, ITRealms reveals.

The proponent of this latest application and immediate past president of Information Technology Association of Nigeria (ITAN) and chief executive officer of Connect Technologies, Chief Chris Uwaje said the app is coming at very auspicious time because no one knows who will be the next victim of Ebola, hence the need to help Nigerians aggregate reports around the Ebola epidemic.

He also said that as concerned Information Technology (IT) citizens of Nigeria, his organisation is worried over the epidemic.

“We are collectively challenged and should now be counted and step forward to deploy our IT expertise and skills to engage and curtail the Ebola pandemic,” he told ITRealms.

According to him, in response, the Connect Technology team has created an Ebola: Database-Engine.

“It is an App to capture Ebola Report Online Nationwide,” he said.

This app, he further said, is accessible free of charge, at the Ebola nationwide report centre, urging information managers to feel free to access it and revert.

He equally enjoined Nigerians to log on, spread the word and let’s avert the waiting catastrophe by building on relevant key information together.

The mobile app, he pointed out is a mobile software solutions developed for health and fitness and is compatible with some of the mobile smart devices in the market as well as in use today, especially in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, ITRealms gaathered that President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has declared the control and containment of the Ebola virus in Nigeria, a national emergency.

He therefore directed the Federal Ministry of Health to work in collaboration with the State Ministries of Health, National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) among other relevant agencies to ensure this disease is contained.
