Based on this model, there are five phases as guideline, which are Requirement, Design, Implementation, Verification and Maintenance. In general, this AfterCOVID web application allows user to view how many people register to the application so that they know that they are not alone. User also can record their daily health condition such as blood pressure, oxygen saturation and new symptoms.
