20 Aug StopKorona!
StopKorona! is a mobile app developed based on the best global practices for the prevention and control of the Coronavirus. The app is intended to trace exposure with potentially infected persons, by the detection of the distance between mobile devices/applications by using Bluetooth technology.
The underlying aim of the app is to provide a fast response to healthcare authorities about persons that have been in close contact with the infected person in the past 14 days.
The app uses Bluetooth to communicate with other app users and exchanges encrypted, anonymized data about the distance of all nearby devices, at a distance relevant to the spreading of the infection, for a limited period of the past 14 days.
In case an app user tests positive for COVID-19, the Ministry of Health will request that user to disclose to the Ministry a list of his/her app data, whereby authorities would then detect telephone numbers and inform the persons that they have been in contact with a person positive to COVID-19, whilst fully protecting the privacy thereof.
