With the number of dengue cases on the rise in recent years, Contageo is a very timely app to help Malaysians track dengue hotspots and more importantly perhaps, educate the public by giving them a better understanding of how widespread the disease is today.
The app, which is currently Android-only, gathers information on dengue cases and locations from local authorities and also from the Malaysian Ministry of Health's iDengue portal to give users a map of dengue-prone areas around the country.
Contageo itself isn't merely a passive app however -- the app involves users by allowing them to report new cases, potential breeding grounds and even fogging activities, all of which help to build up a clearer picture of dengue-prone areas.
Contageo is currently still in beta and was created with the help of the University of Malaya Centre of Innovation & Commercialization.
