The said app would emphasize how random generated IDs “won’t identify you to other users” and would prompt its users to turn on alerts.
After completing the setup, users will notice a three-tab layout — labeled as “Exposures” — as this would generate a list of possible dates you have been in contact with a person who got infected with the coronavirus disease. After this, the national/local health agency would advise its users to “proceed on the “Next steps” such as seeking treatment or going into self-isolation.
After this, the “Notify Others” tab will pop out and it would let its users to “Share your positive test result” as the verification process would vary from locality-to-locality.
Though it would depend on the public health authorities to develop these apps, Apple and Google released a sample app code in order to assist in the development of these apps.
This is a developing story. More updates about this may be posted soon.
