The application was used by the Kozhikode City Traffic Police during last year's flood.
"We have been using Qkopy for the past eight months to communicate with the public and we have found it to be very useful.
The district health authorities found Qkopy as an amicable solution for propagating awareness and directions to people in the Nipah virus-affected areas in the district.
"It is being used by about 4,000 people and we have been able to connect with Kochi, Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram City Traffic Police and the DisasterManagement Authority.
People who have saved the official alert number receive instant alerts," said Rajiv Surendran, co-founder of Qkopy.
