Saturday’s Asahi reported that although three months have passed since the coronavirus contact tracking application COCOA was launched, the number of downloads remained low at 17.12 million, or about 14% of the total population, as of Sept. 18. The number of positive cases registered on the app was only 814. The daily wrote that thousands of users have reported a bug in the app since early August in which they received an alert notifying them that they were in close contact with a virus carrier but found no such message when they opened the app. The paper wrote that the Health Ministry is planning to improve the app.
