    ‘Do Not Download’ CoWIN App, health ministry warns

    More than 10,000 people have downloaded it and are facing problems. Also, they are not getting any information regarding the vaccination process.

    Guwahati: The ministry of health and family welfare on Wednesday warned the citizens to beware of apps named ‘CoWIN’ and downloading the app can create personal risk.

    Reportedly so far, more than 10,000 people have downloaded it and are facing problems. Also, they are not getting any information regarding the vaccination process.

    In a Tweet by health ministry, it stated: “Some apps named ‘CoWIN’ apparently created by unscrupulous elements to sound similar to upcoming official platform of Govt, are on App stores. Don’t download or share personal information on these. Dept official platform will be adequately publicised on its launch.”

    Notably, the official CoWIN (COVID Vaccine Intelligence Network) app introduced by the Centre is currently in its pre-production stage and hasn’t gone live on Google play store or any other App store.

    This app is supposed to be the only digital platform to make the vaccination process streamlines.
