in5, the UAE-based startup, is helping to design blockchain-based methods to contain the growing cases of COVID-19 across the country and to flatten the curve.

On May 20, it has been reported that Liber Health, supported by in5, is one of the platforms used for patient identification supported by blockchain technology, as they are creating a contactless system to recognize the biometric ID data and analyze suspected COVID-19 symptoms.

However, Liber Health hopes that by tracking patients that have been in contact with suspected COVID-19 cases, they can help individuals apply quarantine measures as soon as possible.

It has been analyzed that Liber Health plans to expand conversations with major public and private sector entities, primarily in UAE, to implement the technology and reduce the number of COVID-19 infections.

Syed Abrar Ahmed, the CEO of Liber Health, thinks that the platform could save “thousands of patient lives lost due to medical errors” caused by the lack of auditable data, a statement backed by Dr. Sana Farid, the founder and CEO of the consulting firm Munfarid.

Likewise, in5 also seeks to leverage 3D printing and robotics to design personal protective equipment for frontline medical workers in the country, as their proposed robotics aims to keep children engaged at home while creating a contactless biometric ID system.

Thus, Majed Al Suwaidi, the Managing Director of Dubai Media City and in5 lead, stated:

“Dubai has always been a hub for talent, and we enable highly-skilled individuals with innovative ideas to thrive across our sector-focused ecosystems. Some of the sharpest minds are now creating potentially life-saving products and services to beat the virus, while others are proactively reaching out to relevant authorities to provide knowledge and expertise.”
