An enhanced BeAware Bahrain mobile app has been launched by the Information and eGovernment Authority (iGA).

It is part of efforts to turn the app into a digital wallet which will store electronic copies of all important personal documents.

Last week, the iGA said that the updated Covid-19 patient tracking app was aimed at making life more convenient for citizens and residents.

Services and features added to the app include:

l My Cards which will allow users to digitally view their personal documents such as birth certificate, ID Card, passport, driving licence and vehicle ownership certificate;

l My appointments where users can view all the appointments at government hospitals and health centres, Salmaniya Medical Complex medical prescriptions delivery, Covid-19 test and vaccination;

BeAware Bahrain was originally launched in 2020 to monitor Covid-19 patients who were quarantined at home to combat the spread of the disease.

During the worldwide pandemic, the award-winning platform was crucial in tracing individuals who had come into contact with an active Covid-19 case.

It later became vital for all citizens and residents of Bahrain, as it displayed vaccination certificates which were for some time a requirement for entry into most public spaces and travel abroad.

It also provided users with Covid-19 infection and recovery certificates, spread awareness and updates about the disease, and allowed the Health Ministry to maintain accurate contact tracing data.
