Corona Kavach Information ApplicationApp has been made in public interest to capture the COVID 19 outbreak in India
Please note that this is a beta version of the Corona Kavach mobile application, which is still undergoing final testing before its official release.This app is being developed in public interest to give information and capture the outbreak of Corona Virus. The data will be used to conduct analysis and provide information about the active COVID 19 cases in India. Additional features are also added to track your breathing capacity and a survey form to keep a self check.

Corona Kavach, a COVID-19 tracker, has been released by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) in association with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MHFW). Currently in its beta stage, the app is still a work in progress and crashed more than a few times while we were testing it, and we also had a lot of trouble trying to generate an OTP to log in.
The goal however, is to use a person's smartphone data to track their location and alert if they are at risk of being exposed to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). As per the official description, the app aims to provide information about coronavirus and capture information. The app is only available for Android right now.
Because of these challenges, it's hard to say that the government's Corona Kavach will be very effective, but if you're still interested in getting the app, this is how you'll use it.
Here's how to use Corona Kavach
Upon opening the Corona Kavach app, it shows a screen which says that app has been developed by MeitY and MHFW.
You can read through the next few screens, and then the app asks for permissions to track your location, and to access files on your device, (the reason for this permission is not explained to the user), and then finally, it asks you to register with a one time password (OTP) sent to your mobile number.
From the homepage, you can get some basic information about the number of people infected, the number of people cured, and the number of deaths. You can also go into the menu, and fill in the questionnaire so it knows your status.
Clicking the Corona Kavach logo will start the one-hour countdown, which is how long the app will track your location. 
In case you come into contact with someone else who has set their status to infected, the app is supposed to issue an alert, but otherwise, that's all you need to know about how to use the app.
