The geomatization of the covid-19 care offer for the ORSEC Plan in Algeria

M. Naili, D. Telaidjia


Currently in Algeria, the epidemiological situation of the COVID-19 pandemic expresses a very strong spread of the virus on the national territory, with a certain disparity between the wilayas. Currently, 34 wilayas are in sanitary confinement. Additional provisions have been implemented as part of the national policy to combat the spread of the virus. Stakeholders in this area are always looking for appropriate solutions for the strategic management of the pandemic. However, the traditional method of managing the different operations of intervention and coordination between the representatives of all the modules constitutes an obstacle to the proper management of the plan of Organization of the response of Civil Security. This paper attempts to combine several scientific tools for the fight against the coronavirus in Algeria.

The Geomatization of the Covid-19 Care Offering ensures the transition from a classic to a localizable digital state that facilitates decision-making before, during and after the crisis. To achieve our goal we used Esri’s ArcGIS solutions to acquire, abstract, archive, analyze and display COVID-care offering data19 to handle the medical care and hygiene module and the various modules of the ORSEC plan in a dashboard and coordination between the different strategic actors.

Glaring inequities left the majority of wilayas unprepared for the COVID-19 pandemic according to a new COVID-19 Care Supply Index (C19-CSI). we recorded a rate of 2.08% represented by Algiers as the most prepared wilaya that demonstrates the strong centralization of the Algerian health system , and a rate of 18.75% for the 9 wilayas moderately prepared while a rate of 79, 16% making 38 wilayas the least prepared in the face of covid-19. The new version of the proposed ORSEC plan could be a real coordination tool between the different strategic actors in Algeria.
