KATHMANDU: Coronavirus contact-tracing apps will be launched in Europe and Australia in the next two to four weeks, BBC reported.
Germany’s health minister Jens Spahn said his country will push out apps in three to four weeks.
Meanwhile, Australia and Denmark plan to launch apps within two weeks.
Several countries are scrambling to develop contact-tracing apps around the globe.
It is learnt that they will use Bluetooth or satellite location data to record who a person has been in close proximity to and that information can then be used to notify app-users if someone they have met becomes ill with Covid-19.
