New tracing app model ensures data protection, quality and epidemiologically relevant assessments
Fraunhofer provides key components to develop app aimed to contain the coronavirus pandemic
The protective measures taken in recent weeks have helped blunt the first wave of COVID-19 infections. A tracing app paired with a selective epidemiological assessment remains a key digital component of the campaign to control and contain the current coronavirus pandemic. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is sharing its developments towards a tracing app at the federal level to contribute to a decentralized solution. These components will enable users to volunteer their data for researchers to investigate the pandemic directly.
