Every user will have a QR code which indicates a guide to his health condition.

Residents are urged to download the new smart app introduced by the health ministry to make contact tracing easier.

Called 'Al Hosn Al Raqmi', the application would allow the Ministry of Health and Prevention (Mohap) to identify people who have been mostly exposed to the virus, said Dr Amena Al Shamsi from Mohap.

"Every user will have a QR code which indicates a guide to his health condition. It also has a feature where the person can know whether he or she has been in contact with anyone who tested positive for Covid-19," she said on Saturday.

As movement restrictions are eased in some parts of the country, Dr Al Shamsi reminded everyone that strict safety measures still apply.

"Easing restrictions does not mean we have to stop sticking to safety instructions. Everybody is urged to cooperate. Following official instructions is a national duty," she said.
