Pune Smart City joins PMC in fight against Covid-19Updated: Mar 31, 2020 21:45 IST
In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, Pune Smart City in coordination with Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has switched the functions of the smart city command centre and developed an integrated dashboard to monitor quarantine facilities, track health of suspected patients and their contacts under home quarantine. The smart city command and control center now monitors operations containing the spread of the Covid-19.
The disaster management cell of PMC also provides help to the quarantined people through helpline.
Apart from this, the Pune Smart City has mapped each Covid-19 positive case using Geospatial Information System (GIS), tracking health care operations at the Naidu Hospital and drawing up containment plan using heat mapping technologies.
Pune Smart City is using Geospatial Information System for tracking and monitoring the areas and create buffer zones where patients are diagnosed positive with Covid-19. This helps to implement containment plan as per the government guidelines. The mapping of the containment zones reflects in the dashboard.
The mobile application Sayyam has been developed to provide the full support to quarantined people online. Pune Smart City has also provided free Wi-Fi facilities to quarantined people at isolation centers. A massive awareness campaign is being carried through social messaging on social media and website.
