Decode-19 can be used by three groups of people (The Public, Police and Health departments). At the initial stage, all the people have to get registered with this app by providing all their details including (Name, age, travel record after January 2020, health conditions and their existing symptoms which can be updated if required. According to the data given by the person, the system determines whether the person needs to be quarantined or needs any other medical attention.
