Canaries chosen for pilot project of covid-tracking mobile app

The Canaries have been chosen for the pilot project of a covid-tracking mobile app, Sanidad has announced. The app monitors the anonymized movement of people who have contracted the virus and warns their contacts that they may be at risk of infection, thus enabling them to self-isolate to await symptoms or to have a test, and so help control the spread of the pandemic. The app is compatible throughout the EU, and thanks to EU-level database sharing, case tracking will help show the status of the pandemic in each region, but the national and regional Governments stress that all data use complies with data protection legislation, and that any identity or personal details of those tracked are guaranteed to be completely confidential. ​
