 Google Apple push new system: mobile phones can be used to track contacts with new coronavirus


In the case of the iPhone, a new version of the IOS operating system released on Tuesday will alert users if their local health authorities are using the exposure notification system and allow users to set up without downloading any new apps. On Android devices, users will also be prompted by the mobile operating system, but still need to download the automatically generated application.

Maryland, Nevada, Virginia and Washington, D.C., will be the first places in the United States to use the new system, the two companies said. The new system is also used in conjunction with tools released by the two companies in May that allow public health officials to develop applications that allow iPhones and Android devices to use Bluetooth signals to detect proximity to positive people.

In recent weeks, six U.S. states and about 20 countries have launched an exposure notification app based on Apples Google technology, with no major glitches. There is increasing compatibility between these applications, allowing cross-border tracking.

However, the effectiveness of the exposure notification application in helping to slow the spread of the new coronavirus remains to be seen. For privacy reasons, most governments do not have detailed data to track application usage. (small)
