Abstract

COVID-19 contact tracing is one of preventive solution to slow down the spread of the virus. Some of countries have been implementing manual contact tracing and also digital tracing using smartphone application. The success of the digital tracing implementation requires cooperation from the community and firm leadership from the government as well as medical record reporting from the public health so that the data can be analyzed as soon as possible for the next preventive action required. However, for countries with large population like Indonesia, it is difficult to control the society while the health facilities are quite overwhelmed enough to cope with the number of infected, which has not decreased to date. Proximity-based COVID-19 contact tracing system devices using BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology is focusing on tracing and controlling the spread of virus in local community. For example, the system devices will be implemented in a factory, the devices are put in front pocket of factory employee' shirt or hooked on the shirt. The devices will record the proximity between employees and the data is synchronized using their smartphone or via application to be stored in database. The proximity records will be used once there is an infected employee to obtain information of possibility of other employees are being infected, to avoid massive test and isolation. In addition, the use of this device can be expanded even further.
