App for tracing and detecting COVID-19 coronavirus cases
The app was developed by Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor, and Social Affairs and notifies users when they are in contact with an infected person. To do this, both localization and a Bluetooth connection must be activated.
How do a coronavirus tracing and identification app work?
Such an application exchanges information via Bluetooth to each user's application that other users are at least one meter apart for at least fifteen minutes. If any of these users report that they have been diagnosed with coronavirus, others who are in contact with this person are immediately notified of a possible infection.
Such an application has become another helpful tool for identifying potential cases while ensuring confidentiality. In the meantime, there is also an approach to what protective measures you should take to prevent infection.
