The Government and the Department of Health released their new Coronavirus app today..
The app will enhance existing contact tracing measures, by enabling users to identify close contacts and to alert those who are using the app of the need for COVID-19 testing as quickly as possible.
Commenting on the role of the app, the new Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, said:
“Together we have made a huge collective effort in recent months to limit the spread of COVID-19. As we ease restrictions, many important aspects of Irish life are returning and we are able to access more services and to meet more people.”
“The introduction of the COVID Tracker App will allow us to speed up reporting and tracing from the first onset of the symptoms of COVID-19, making app’s role in testing and contact tracing vital to the continued momentum of the reopening of Irish society and business.”
The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, the Apple Store or at http://covidtracker.ie/.
