So what’s going on with the new Mor Chana app.
As far as the Thai Government is concerned, it’s part of their fight to track and trace the Covid-19 virus during this current outbreak. More Chana is a contact tracing tool.
In essence, the app will allow you to check in when you go to different locations around Thailand, enter shops and buildings. As guests in the country, expats and travellers here should acknowledge that we have a role and responsibility to play in getting this current situation under control, as well as the Thais.
Of course you are well entitled to decide NOT to download and activate the app but the narrative from the government is that they see More Chana as an important part of their strategy. The app will also alert you when you are entering areas or provinces of potentially high risk. Being alert to these situations is like being alert to any other type of news.
So far, the application has been downloaded more than 3 million times
The app will also help health authorities to identify those who have been in close contact with infected people. The CCSA says that this may also help prevent medical practitioners from contracting the disease.
The app uses GPS and bluetooth technology to track and trace your smartphone, SHOULD the CCSA need to alert you, or others, about any changes in your, or others’ Covid status. At any stage you can disable the app or delete it from your phone.
