In a bid to give access to the people on covid-19-related facilities available in the state, the IT department has linked the complete covid-19 healthcare infrastructure to GIS mapping. The mapping of the entire infrastructure will enable people to know about quarantine centres, covid hospitals and testing facilities in the state.

“The IT department has linked the complete covid-19 healthcare infrastructure, including covid-19 hospital and testing facilities, quarantine facilities, and positive cases with the GIS-based information system for the proper management of covid-19," Odisha IT secretary Manoj Mishra told ETGovernment.

The system has been developed by Orissa Space Application Centre (ORSAC) and is hosted on COVID.GIS.IN. It will be available on the state dashboard from Thursday, he informed.

The mapping system will also facilitate information on temporary medical centres (TMCs) set up for migrants who are returning to the state, along with their location, bed capacity, name of the nodal officer, and contact number.

Migrants, as well as citizens stranded abroad, shall get relevant information by logging in the dashboard, which is strengthened with GIS-based information system, to see these facilities on the basis of their exact position based on longitude and latitude and also know about the facilities available there, he said.

Mapping of the covid-19 facilities will also help the district collector or nodal officer to decide on the number of TMC, quarantine center they require in their areas according to the distance in between each other and distance from covid hospitals and centre, said Mishra.

Another feature of the mapping system is to help identify contaminant zones according to the positives cases found in several districts. Instead of making the entire district as a containment zone, we can make a tighter containment plan in a particular area where the number is higher, he added.
