Joint corona app (request for access to 23 countries) from Apple and Google
It was announced that US and technology companies Apple and Google, which developed a common application for the detection of Coronavirus (COVID-19) contaminants, requested to access data from 23 countries for the Covid-19 mobile tracking system.
US-based technology companies Apple and Google were working on a system to track coronavirus cases and potential spreads after the onset of the coronavirus outbreak.
According to the news that the international news agency Reuters has passed on to its subscribers, the Covid-19 mobile tracking system, which the two companies have developed and launched online, has been requested to access data from 23 countries.
According to the same news, Apple and Google have not yet clarified how many countries have approved the application in question. The application primarily aims to support the operation of contact-tracing apps installed on smartphones.
The application will examine with Bluetooth technology, who the smartphone user has been in contact with, and approached for a long time to catch a coronavirus.
If one of the contacts is Covid-19 patient, a warning message will go to the user’s smartphone and the user will be informed about the issue.
It is stated that the ultimate goal of the two companies is to develop a technology that will help you identify people who have coronavirus around you without having to install such monitoring and tracking applications.
