Message from your mobile phone: “You have been in contact with someone positive for coronavirus.”

In April 2020, Google and Apple announced that are building a coronavirus tracking system into iOS and Android. The joint effort would enable the use of Bluetooth technology to establish a voluntary contact-tracing network. Official apps from public health authorities would get extensive access to data kept on phones that have been in close proximity with each other. (Georges Orwell was a tomfool.) If users report that they’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19, the system would alert people if they were in close contact with the infected person.

Close contact? Bluetooth connects over at least 6 meters.


Bluetooth connection from one apartment to another.
