The Myanmar Ministry of Health and Sports is fast to give an update to its citizens about the latest and ongoing virus cases in their country, by using such innovative technology.

The total specimens tested the total number of persons under investigation (PUI), lab-confirmed individuals, death among lab-confirmed, and the number of total recoveries were tracked and revealed in its surveillance dashboard online using a Dynamic QR code. 

Partnering with the QRTIGER QR Code generator, they were able to deliver quick information and give timely updates to the public regarding the number of their citizens that is believed to have been infected by the deadly virus.

The QR codes' quick access to smartphones is one of the main reasons why it is widely integrated into various purposes, they can even serve as a highly effective and efficient health service tool, in response to this global health emergency.
