The technology would be able to track those who may have been exposed to COVID-19 through Bluetooth.
The state told WAAY31 it began considering using technology to help trace the coronaviurs because they now have about 130 contact tracers who are tracing on top of their other work duties at the department of public health.
Meanwhile, it is not yet known when apps with Apple-Google Exposure Notification implementation will be made available to the public. "What we've built is not an app-rather public health agencies will incorporate the API into their own apps that people install". If there is a match, the user may be notified that they have come into contact with an individual that tested positive for COVID-19, and the system will share the day the contact occurred, how long it lasted, and the Bluetooth signal strength (e.g., proximity) of that contact.
The Australian government said it was in talks with Apple and Google to improve its COVIDSafe app, which now requires phone numbers, postal codes and age ranges.
Green Party TD Ossian Smyth, who acts as the party's Health Spokesperson, confirmed on Twitter that the Irish Department of Health would be using the platform.
Google and Apple recently launched its exposure notification API-which debuted originally as a joint contact-tracing software tool-to the public on May 21.
Google and Apple have implemented several measures to combat concerns that the apps would lead to a breach of privacy or security. Not surprisingly, some public health authorities are saying that the technology is too restrictive because the decentralized processing of data on devices prevents aggregate analysis of infection hot spots and rates, and the technology excludes location data.
Anyone who uses the app must do so voluntarily and opt-in to Exposure Notifications. Whenever you download and enable a coronavirus contact tracing app, you will receive a notification from the app if you are exposed to an infected person.
The app can't be used for commercial purposes and only one app per country is permitted to ensure that there is no competition involved.
Although 5.8 million Australians had downloaded the COVIDSafe app as of Monday, the privacy protections that Google and Apple are offering could entice more users to download the app. Google said: "User adoption is key to success and we believe that these strong privacy protections are also the best way to encourage use of these apps".
