As we are trying to make our days count during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, the Malaysian government has recently developed a mobile application — MySejahtera — to assist the citizens in monitoring the Covid-19 outbreak in the country. According to MySejahtera’s website, this application also provides necessary information for the Ministry of Health to plan for early and effective countermeasures.

Apparently, this app allows users to perform self-assessments on themselves and their family members. Users are also allowed to monitor their health progress throughout the Covid-19 outbreak. If needed, the app will also be able to locate the nearest hospitals and clinics for Covid-19 screening and treatment.

Admin tried registering and installing the app, it is absolutely easy to get through. I have also done the health self-assessment by answering the questions given, the app then classified me under the “Low Risk” group. There is also a total of six classifications, namely Low Risk, Casual Contact, Close Contact, Person Under Surveillance (PUS), Person Under Investigation (PUI), and Confirmed Case.
