Abstract: This study reviews the need to invest in tracing and monitoring of pandemic disease for the purpose of tracking and isolation of SARS-CoV-2 carrier for effective removal of the disease within the nation so that eventual increase mortality and poor health services in the country can be reduced. In addition, delay in adequate contact-tracing can lead to ineffective process of keeping the disease under control among the populace and the outcome can be disastrous to the people and the economy in general. Provision of a technological contact tracing can be done automatically with available contact-less thermometer devices linked to adequate telemedicine portal in different locations and this is essential and key to reduction in challenges faced in tracking and monitoring by governmental public health agencies. Therefore the paper has developed a graph-based contact-tracing mobile application for effective tracing and monitoring of COVID -19 patients which is aimed at reviewing existing architectural framework patterns on contact-tracing, designing of virtual thermometers, and the creation of telemedicine portal based on semantic graph architecture.
