Apple and Google Launch COVID-19 Exposure Notification System to Support Health Agencies

Shots:

  • Apple and Google have released their smartphone technology to automatically notify people if they have been exposed to the COVID-19.  Last month, the companies collaborated to leverage their technology to trace the spread of coronavirus
  • The software leverages Bluetooth technology to detect when someone with the app has in contact with another app user who tests positive for the COVID-19. The exposure notifications technology is available to public health agencies on both iOS and Android
  • The companies stated that they are not trying to replace contact tracing, but their “exposure notification” system can augment the process and slow the spread of COVID-19. Public health agencies from Germany to the states of Alabama and South Carolina have been waiting to use the Apple-Google model, while other governments stated that privacy restrictions will be a hindrance because public health workers will have no access to the data
