20 Aug Stop Covid (Georgia)
Stop Covid, the app created by the Ministry of IDPs, Labour, Health & Social Affairs, supports Georgia’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 through contact tracing.
The great danger with COVID-19 is the long incubation period. Our goal is to inform people who have had contact with another infected person at an early stage and thus prevent them from unknowingly spreading the virus further.
When you download Stop Covid you will be given a unique ID that allows the app to anonymously determine social interactions with other app users. Encounters that have a certain intensity in terms of time and proximity are stored locally by both apps in an encrypted form. If someone tests positive for COVID-19, people who may have had contact with the infected person within the last few days will receive a warning with instructions to contact the local governmental authority.
