A group of students from the University of Colombo Astronomy Department have created a mobile app to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Professor Chandana Jayaratne of the University of Colombo says that the app can detect potential COVID-19 patients  at a distance.

Professor Jayaratne stated that with the opening of the airport to the public, this app could serve many functions to identify COVID-19 patients.

It is reported that they will hand over the app to the WHO in order to share the app with other countries.
