The correct answer to this question is Lalitesh Katragadda. He is a software engineer that works at Google. He has a number of technological achievements under his belt. One of those includes being the founder of Indihood, which is a platform for crowdsourcing. Through his job at Google, he was able to help develop the Aarogya Setu application.

This app is important for helping slow the spread of COVID-19. While tests are limited, the help can use a person location to help them identify if they have come in contact with someone with the virus. It always gives tips on dealing with the virus.

The main developer of the Aarogya Setu App is the National Informatics Centre. This is a type of mobile tracking application that can be downloaded by the people in India. For those who are not aware, the name Aarogya Setu means “Bridge from freeness from the disease.”

There are a lot of people who are getting affected by the virus every day. The government wishes that through the app, it can help people understand the virus better by knowing the symptoms that they have to watch out for.

At the same time, it will also help people know what to do if in case they have already acquired the virus. By raising awareness, people may actually become free from the disease.

The Aarogya Setu App is an app that has been created by the government of India. The country knows that it would like to get the virus under control. The problem is that there are so many people in India that it will be hard to keep track of them all.

Since the app can be downloaded by a lot of people in India, it will allow the government to know their personal information. There is no need to worry because the personal information will not be released to other third party websites or apps.

The personal information will just be used to keep track of the people who are in the area. Those who are showing symptoms of having the disease can be quarantined or would need to be brought to the hospital so that their condition can possibly be stabilized.

The Aarogya Setu Mobile App is known to be a mobile app that has been developed by the government of India. The main goal of this is to make sure that the different citizens of India will be able to track if they are affected by the virus.

This tracking app is free, which is one of the reasons why the people in India have downloaded the app. They are required to turn on their Bluetooth and location at all times. This has become the top app right now because people would like to know more about how they can possibly not get the virus, especially when they try to go out.

The correct answer to this question is the Government of India. The ministry of IT and electronics in India worked to create this app, to help keep the people of India safe and updated about their risk of contracting the virus.

Aarogya Setu is done through using Bluetooth on the users device. It also uses a social graph and will take the persons movements through the app. If a person happens to come in contact or close proximity to someone with the virus, the app will alert them of this information. The app also gives information on social distancing and staying safe.

Aarogya setu app was developed by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology Government of India to help citizens to identify the risk of contracting Coronavirus.

The app is available in the Apple app store and googles play store. It available in 11 languages; you only need to register with your phone number and your health credential.

The Aarogya setu helps to track the coronavirus infection by using the smartphone GPS system and Bluetooth and provide information that will help you determine if you have been near a COVID -19 infected patient or not.

The app uses location to know if the areas you around come under the infected areas of the databases and also need activated Bluetooth to determine if you are six feet from an infected individual.
