SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aurora Mobile Limited ("Aurora Mobile" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:JG), a leading mobile developer service provider in China, today announced that it has launched a suite of proprietary outbreak analytic and monitoring systems (the “Systems”) to assist national ministries as well as municipal and provincial authorities in their efforts to bring the current outbreak of 2019-nCOV coronavirus under control. The Systems will assist with government decision-making for targeted prevention and control and aid in delivering highly efficient implementation.
The Systems will cover a total of 334 cities in 31 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions across China, and will be able to identify high-risk groups based on their mobility behavior characteristics through daily data updates. In addition, the Systems will enable the monitoring of migration outflows from high-risk areas and predict future migration patterns. Aurora Mobile believes that these features will improve the capability of local authorities to effectively assess the progress of their epidemic prevention efforts and improve the efficiency of their targeted response measures. The net effect will result in better prevention of the spread of the coronavirus.
The Systems also include a “Migration Backflow Prediction” feature that models future migration patterns of people who are currently stuck in high-risk areas but are likely to move elsewhere or return to places of origin. These forecasts will enable better operational and labor planning and facilitate expedited resumption of work in low-risk areas. This will also boost post-outbreak economic recovery in local regions.
In addition, Aurora Mobile is developing a statistical model in partnership with scholars from Peking University, Fudan University and Renmin University of China to analyze the relational dynamic between population outflow from high-risk areas and the evolving outbreak in regions where people are migrating to. Using Aurora Mobile’s extensive anonymized data and data feeds from public sources, the model will help identify the characteristics of high-risk groups, and in so doing, facilitate more effective government targeted epidemic control efforts across China.
Mr. Weidong Luo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Aurora Mobile, commented, “At this critical juncture, Aurora Mobile will continue to leverage its robust data analytic and modeling capabilities to provide comprehensive technical support to national authorities in the fight against the outbreak. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of corporate social responsibility and will leverage the strength of our platform to support our nation’s battle against the outbreak.”
