Leading technology companies Google and Apple have teamed up to come up with a tool in a few days that will help track Coronavirus patients.
Google has released new details on a Blue Tooth system for Android and Apple devices that will help track coronavirus patients.
Users will not be allowed to collect location-related information under this tool, while approval will be sought from any user prior to receiving information about their proximity to another user.
Both companies have dubbed the new tool ‘Contact Tracing’, which will alert users via their smartphones that they have come in contact with a person infected with the coronavirus.
This new ‘contact tracing tool’ from Apple and Google will be available to all users this month.
