Aarogya Setu provides important Covid-19 information such as how many Aarogya Setu users are in the proximity (from 500 meters up to 10kms), statistics on Covid-19 cases, health guidelines, and most importantly users' status if they're safe or not. The app also has an e-pass section.
The government has relaxed the rules for using Aarogya Setu in the fourth phase of lockdown. For instance, the application is no longer compulsory for companies and industries. The Noida administration also withdrew its older order that made the app mandatory for the residents in the area.
