India thinks to give wristband to patients for effective surveillance

Agency News

India plans to manufacture thousands of wristbands that will monitor the locations and temperatures of coronavirus patients, help perform contact tracing and aid health workers delivering essential services.

Broadcast Engineering Consultants India, a government-owned company, will present wristband designs to hospitals and state governments next week and work with Indian start-ups to manufacture them. George Kuruvilla, the company's chairman, said the wristbands are likely to be rolled out in May.
