Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is currently the most crucial emerging virus in the world. The absence of licensed medication or vaccination leads to alternative strategies. A fundamental response plan implemented by all countries was the detection and isolation of infected cases. Contact tracing of infected citizens and testing every suspected case is a prerequisite to avoid new quarantine measures. Infected cases called 'Orphan cases' with no epidemiological connection are more worrying. The initial method to identify them should be knowing the probability for a citizen to be infected, given that presents specific symptoms, to be tested as a suspected case and not as random. This article proposes a cloud-based identification system that studies suspected cases to increase the likelihood that a positive result is correct. Also, it introduces an innovative solution to prevent and control the further spread of Corona-virus disease based on smartphones through the deployment of cutting-edge computing systems in the framework of a Naive Bayesian Network (NBN). Furthermore, the integration of Google Maps could provide geolocation risk assessment and early inferences to government health authorities to raise the test rates in risk- prone areas.
