Abstract

Population confluence in internal or external areas considerably increases transmission of COVID-19, due to not respecting the social distancing established by the health system. The objective of this work was to make use of programming techniques,
using the PHP language (hypertext preprocessor), for the development of an application that simulates the maximum capacity of people who can enter an internal or external area. The methodology allowed recognizing common internal and external areas, configurating to the development environment, coding, simulation proposing and executing of the simulator where a practical case and ten places were evaluated to determine its reliability. The simulator provided the maximum capacity of people who can enter an internal or external area, complying with the social distancing of 2 m. The results made it possible to know that the use of information technologies through programming techniques and the PHP language contributed to being a technological alternative for the fight against the spread of the virus.
