Mumbai (Maharashtra): Actor Sonu Sood, who has continuously stepped up and helped the citizens of the country during the covid-19 pandemic, has now come up with one more initiative to support the people with the vaccination process in rural India.
He has launched COVREG, that aims to create a volunteer program for registration of COVID-19 vaccination in rural India.
The initiative has been powered by rural fintech leader Spice Money, which will provide the technological expertise for building the application, and will onboard volunteers through the website www.covreg.in.
The volunteers will be provided with an app to help with COVID vaccine registrations which aims at covering approximately 95 crore of Indian rural population. That comprises over 65 per cent of the total Indian population. Spice Money will help provide the technological expertise for building the app. Currently the fintech company provides a redirection to the CoWIN website with the help of its Adhikari app and web portal which has been so far used by more than 2 lakh Adhikaris based in rural India to help register their customers for India’s biggest vaccination drive.
COVREG will be the first ASP-enabled B2B apps. The app has been authorised by the Ministry of Health, Government of India as Application Service Provider (ASP), with protected CoWIN APIs.
The COVREG volunteers will be trained to address issues that people may face and need help with. Anyone with a smartphone and 4G connection can become a volunteer after registering on the official website.
“Vaccination is the need of the hour in India to win the battle against COVID-19. Rural India continues to struggle in coping with the pandemic and is now also struggling with vaccine registrations. So, COVREG is created based on a detailed understanding of rural India and its needs observed through months of on-ground work,” said the actor about the initiative.
