Coronavirus: Trudeau announces nationwide COVID-19 contact tracing app

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a nationwide COVID-19 mobile contact tracing app on Thursday, which will notify users if they’ve come into contact with the novel coronavirus.

He said the app, which was developed by the Canadian Digital Service in cooperation with the Government of Ontario, Shopify and Blackberry, would soon begin testing in Ontario and would be available across the country as of July.

Trudeau said the government has worked with the privacy commissioner on the mobile app, adding that no personal information will be collected or shared and that it would not use location services or geotagging.

Coronavirus: Ontario to pilot new COVID-19 contact tracing app | FULL

Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced a new mobile app to help track the spread of COVID-19 that is expected to launch in Ontario on July 2.

Ontario government officials say the app – named “COVID Shield” will supplement the province’s contact tracing strategy ahead of a potential second wave of the virus in the fall.

The government says the app works on an opt-in basis in order to protect the privacy of users, and the province has consulted with the Information and Privacy Commissioner on its development.

Ontario is reporting 173 new cases of COVID-19 today, and three more deaths. It’s the lowest number of new cases since late March and brings the province to a total of 32,917.

Coronavirus tracing apps: False hope and hidden dangers? | COVID-19 Special

Nations try to track and trace their way out of the corona crisis. Some see apps as essential. But so far apps have had limited success. Australia’s has picked up only one case in a month. And privacy concerns remain, with a citizen’s every move being monitored. Not everyone is keen on installing a tracing app on their phone. But in countries such as India, there’s little choice.The Indian government has released a contact tracing app and people there must download the state-backed app if they want to travel. Some countries, like Japan, appear to have fought off the virus without the help of such technology.
So are tracking apps really key to fighting Covid-19?

Turkey turning coronavirus tide with huge contact tracing effort – BBC News

Turkey, which had one of the fastest growing coronavirus outbreaks in the world, says it is turning the tide.

The rate of infection is slowing to its lowest level since the first recorded case back in March. The authorities say a nationwide contact tracing system, involving almost 6,000 teams, has been the key to overcoming the virus.

Meanwhile in the UK, the pandemic is posing a particular challenge in rural areas, where the population is often older and poorer. But in the village of Piddle-Hinton, in Dorset, a huge volunteer effort has brought unexpected benefits for its 500 residents.

Clive Myrie presents BBC News at Ten reports from International Correspondent Orla Guerin in Istanbul, and West of England Correspondent Jon Kay.
