The app was developed by The Sona Group subsidiaries, Vee Technologies and Sona College
of Technology. IT Team of Vee Technologies along with the students of Sona College of
Technology worked together to develop VeeTrace App. VeeTrace app is designed to track
COVID-19 infected people and notify the app users when these people are within 10 m, 100
m & 1 km radius.
VeeTrace can be easily downloaded from https://tinyurl.com/veetrace and is highly
compatible with any smartphone with an active mobile data pack. The app needs voluntary
public registration and accurate status updates. This provides timely information for
the health officials and helps them track all the COVID-19 infected people.
This is a simple app and asks only simple basic information like name and contact number
of the user who downloads the app. The success of VeeTrace is based on the number of
people using it. When more people start using this app, the chances of reducing the
community spread will be higher.
