ISLAMABAD, May 5 (APP): Special Assistant to the Prime Minister and Head of Digital Pakistan Project Tania Idros has said that data obtained from modern technology can play an important role in decision making. He expressed the view that Pakistan may not be able to withstand another major lockdown so we have to move towards smart lockdown.
Talking to the British Broadcasting Corporation, the Special Assistant said that the role of Digital Pakistan is important in fighting the Coronavirus. In such a situation, he said, the response to limiting the outbreak could not be effective in the absence of verified and real-time data. The country’s epidemic control strategy is based on data and we have finalized measures to collect data from different provinces.
Digital Pakistan’s role in fighting coronavirus is important
Tania Idris said that in the beginning, everyone was working on their own. The first problem in this regard was how to combine the data of different systems. For this, a system has been set up so that the information collected by the provinces can be used. In addition to integration, it has also added new features that make it possible for people to consult a doctor on WhatsApp.
In response to a question about the use of new technology to deal with Corona, Tania Idris said that it is not only important to use technology for technology but also to formulate policy with the help of data. He said that the importance of data systems in Pakistan needs to be understood so that data can be used in decision making as data is of central importance in every field. It is not time to introduce new apps etc. but we need to set targets. Have to do.
“Our goal is to collect data effectively and make effective decisions on it,” he said. He added that future data would show where the epidemic was spreading. “We’ve done a big lockdown once and can we do a big lockdown again? I don’t think we can do it again,” he said, referring to the importance of data in decision-making.
Now is the time to use the data to predict where the outbreak could spread and where it is spreading, using such information to smartly lock down the disease,” he said. Let’s lock down a little space to limit. He said that at present lockdown was going on in all the provinces of the country including the federal capital Islamabad due to which economic activities had declined.
In response to what is being recorded in the data collected, Tania Idris said that the most important central information is who is being tested when what is the patient’s phone number, what is the ID card number, age Statistics on gender and other health issues, etc., are being compiled, they were not being collected from the beginning but as their importance began to emerge, they are now being compiled because of those who do it on the front line. No lab technician can be asked to fill out long forms.
Regarding the role of technology in data collection, Tania Idris has identified three key elements. The first is that data can be viewed in real-time with the help of modern technology and policymakers can make their decisions from the same platform at any given moment. The second important factor is data security and privacy. Initially, people’s lab sheets were available on the WhatsApp containing people’s private information and now they are being protected with the help of technology.
The third major benefit, he said, is a large-scale review. “If you want to assess at a national level, you have to put things together because the epidemic doesn’t see any provincial boundaries,” said Tania Idris. He said it was important to conduct a national review to combat the epidemic, but that the data was safe. “As far as privacy is concerned, personal and identity information can only be seen in very limited places,” he said.
Tania Idrus said the government wants to introduce a feature that will also allow doctors to get guidance on the WhatsApp. Tania Idrus said that now is a rare opportunity for Pakistan to digitize the country’s economy instead of cash. Commenting on the role of Digital Pakistan in the aftermath of the Corona crisis, Tania Idris described the crisis as an important opportunity and said that the crisis has given Pakistan an opportunity to move towards rapid digitization.
We may not have a better opportunity to move our economy from cash to digital. There is no reason why we cannot provide the latest curriculum in the field of education for Pakistani students. Tele-schools have been launched on TV which will soon be brought on the internet and it is not a difficult task to do so. “40% of the population in our country has access to the Internet, which is a challenge, but we have the opportunity to increase access to the Internet in our country,” he said.
“We are trying to make phones and the internet cheaper because if we tax them, then the concept of digital Pakistan will be difficult,” he added. And so we are introducing the Digital Pakistan Foundation. He said that it would be an NGO through which people who do not want to do government jobs can use their best skills for the benefit of Pakistan through this platform.
