GUWAHATI: The National Informatics Centre (NIC), Sonitpur, has developed a web-based application called ‘COVID-19 Quarantine Room Allocation & Monitoring System’ to help Sonitpur district administration in allocating hotel rooms/beds in different institutional quarantine centres/hotels for people returning from outside to the district.
The application has already been put in force.
After discussion with the deputy commissioner, it was decided that NIC Sonitpur would develop an IT-based solution to allocate hotel rooms/beds to people in different institutional quarantine centres and to monitor the room/bed status (vacancy or occupancy) of IQ centres, and accordingly officials of NIC Sonitpur, District Informatics Officer and Additional District Informatics Officer developed the responsive web based application within two days.
So far, 33 institutional quarantine centres including 27 of hotels have been identified and prepared by the Sonitpur district administration with a capacity to quarantine nearly 1400 people.
The Sonitpur district administration can now view the room status of each of the institutional quarantine centres from the dashboard and can allocate room/bed to each quarantined person accordingly.
