COVID-19 apps

In this COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying social distancing, a couple of Apps have been developed. One from the Australian Government, Department of Health that allows people to ‘stay up to date with official information and advice about the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. You can check your symptoms and get notified when urgent information and updates are published’. Called Coronavirus Australia it is available now in the App Store.


The second one has been developed by Google and Apple, called tracing COVID-19app.  ‘The tech giants said they would employ Bluetooth to create “contact tracing technology” tools to alert users if they have come in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a joint statement from the companies.’  This one is available in May 2020.
