Aarogya Setu is an Indian open source cross platform for Contact tracing, Syndromic mapping and self-assessment digital service. Purpose of this app is to spread awareness of COVID 19 and connect to the COVID 19 related health services to the Indian people.

It provides a self assessment test to measure the risk of COVID 19. Apart from this, it is also keeps the users up to date about the latest information of COVID 19.
