The Saturday editions of all national dailies took up the Health Ministry’s announcement on Friday that it will release a smartphone app next week that will inform users when there is a possibility that they may have come into close contact with coronavirus carriers. The technology defines “close contact” as “an encounter lasting 15 minutes or longer separated by a distance of 1 meter or less.” The use of the software, which does not record GPS-based location data, is completely voluntary.
