The government has introduced a new application called PremiseScan which allows business premises to scan personal BruHealth QR codes.
Speaking during a press conference at the Ministry of Health on Thursday, Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and the Second Minister of Finance and Economy, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Dr Hj Mohd Amin Liew Abdullah said this is to ensure that everyone can utilise the BruHealth app.
“The PremiseScan app is a complimentary feature of the BruHealth app that allows users who cannot access BruHealth due to having incompatible phones or those who do not have mobile devices, another alternative to enter businesses and premises,” said the minister.
Users can attain their personal QR codes through www.healthinfo.gov.bn which must be generated daily, printed out and brought around to enter premises such as gyms, shopping centres and restaurants.
“Similar to using the BruHealth app, users will also get a colour code from green, yellow, red, blue or purple.”
“Businesses and premises are then required to use PremiseScan to scan these personal QR codes to allow entry into their establishments while controlling the crowd,” he added.
YB Dato Dr Hj Mohd Amin Liew reminded premises to ensure that individuals scan during entry and before leaving their establishment.
Currently, a total of 233,737 individuals have registered as users on the BruHealth app.
“Meanwhile, a total of 3,825 businesses and premises have also registered,” said the minister, adding that the numbers are encouraging and shows the strong support and cooperation from all walks of life.
Although the country has not reported any new cases for 21 days, YB Dato Dr Hj Mohd Amin Liew stressed that the public still need to be socially responsible and must not be complacent.
In addition to business premises, several government and private sectors have also implemented the use of the BruHealth app for users on and off the premises.
“Through the widespread use of the application, InsyaAllah it will make it easier to conduct contact tracing,” said the minister.
