Startup Kano Team Launches a Mobile Application to Fight COVID 19 in Kano State

Stay Home Stay Safe

 

In as much as we do not want to associate you with COVID-19, we still feel it’s important that we come up with an Application that would help you clear any doubt regarding any symptoms you might be experiencing. We hope you find it helpful. Stay Safe.
This Application is designed to help you answer some basic symptomatic questions about your COVID-19 status. Results at the end would tell you if you align with COVID-19 symptoms or not.

A lot of people find it difficult to differentiate between COVID-19 symptoms and conventional illness’s symptoms. We have designed this Application to help solve the doubt you have on symptoms you might be exhibiting lately. Walking up to a clinic or hospital to ask questions regarding some symptoms we exhibit that align similar to that of COVID-19 has been a nightmare to some of us. This App is to help you do a self-assessment before you eventually go for a proper test at any accredited center.

10 APPS YOU MUST HAVE AS AN ENTREPRENEUR IN KANO

As a Nigerian, being an entrepreneur is an easy yet complicated task. There are a lot of opportunities all around with resources at our hands, but it only takes a wise and creative person to see and be able to use it. Also, it’s not just about being an entrepreneur, or a Nigerian! A Place like Kano state is a very sensitive and complicated place to do business. The ancient city of Kano is a commercial nerve center since before the coming of the colonial masters and still, now it is the center of commerce of Nigeria where everything you could think of is available and every business you could think of is being practiced. Kano is a state of tradition, culture, and religion; so, every move you make would obviously affect your business. Kano people are tricky, in love with new trends, and in love with their businesses, so as long as you want to penetrate the market, you have to stand out, be unique and never give up once you start.
