She added that the application will rely on Bluetooth technology to determine the distances between users ’phones anywhere.

The American companies Apple and Google announced on Friday a collaboration to launch API applications that are working...

And she continued: "In the event that this person is infected with the new Coronavirus, the application will work to alert all the people that the patient visited, to urge them to isolate themselves or take the necessary tests."

Similar applications have already been tried in several countries, such as Singapore and China, but this type of cooperation between Apple and Google has never happened before.

In Europe, the Czech Republic says it will launch a similar application this month, and Britain, Germany, and Italy are also developing their own tracking tools.

The applications presented previously face the problem of "distrust" on the part of users due to privacy considerations. In Singapore, for example, the application uses only 12 percent of the population.

In this regard, Google said in a statement posted on its website, that privacy, transparency, and acceptance are the most important criteria in the new application.
