Quarantine place perimeter breach COVID-19 patients that required to do self-isolate and self-quarantine from public is usually occur when the patient is not following the SOP and regulations drawn by government. This will lead to possibly spread of the COVID-19 virus into the community. These persons need to be closely monitored their movement or location online in order to prevent further spread of COVID-19 to public within their surrounding area. In view of this situation, the research project proposed to develop Quarantine Perimeter Breach Monitoring System (QPBMS) that can detect and alert the authority when the COVID-19 patient commit the offence of perimeter breach from their isolation place. A smartphone GPS and HERE Tracker apps are used in the system for the detection and notification alert. The impact of this monitoring system will enable authority or health official to locate and closely monitored the COVID-19 adhered to their self-isolation period. With the accurate and stable tracing of the HERE tracker, the health officer law enforcer can be notified with a precise info about any quarantine period violation. © 2022 IEEE.

COVID-19 pandemic obligated applying population-level behavioral modifications to effectively prevent the spread of the disease. This necessitated investigating those measures that determine population behavior. Herein we have studied risk perception and information exposure that are among those determinants in Iran. 402 cases from medical sciences students were enrolled during the last week of September 2020. Using an online questionnaire, risk perception and sources of information about COVID-19 were investigated. Although most students considered COVID-19 preventable, merely a few considered the disease curable. A higher risk was perceived concerning the families compared to themselves. Moreover, most of them believed the prognosis good even in high-risk patients. Social media was the most informative source used;however, health professionals were considered the most reliable. The risk perception was equal between those diagnosed with COVID-19 or had a family member diagnosed compared to those without such exposure in most questions. Also, no significant difference was observed in risk perception between those students with serious underlying medical conditions and those without one regarding most items. Lastly, major and grade were the most significant demographic contributors to the risk perception. Moderate risk was perceived overall among the cases in which major and grade were the only remarkable demographic contributors. Unexpectedly, underlying medical history was not significantly correlated with the perceived risk. Lastly, previous COVID-19 exposure merely altered the curability and preventability perception.
