Germany Launches “Corona-Warn” Covid-19 Tracking App

Germany Covid Tracing app

BERLIN, GERMANY – JUNE 16: The photographer holds an Apple iPhone showing the newly-released “Corona-Warn-App” developed by the German government for tracing Covid-19 infections during the coronavirus pandemic on June 16, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. The app has gone through a careful vetting process in order to stay within the bounds of Germany’s tight laws and norms on private data protection. By using a de-centralized system of data retention it will inform users should they come in contact with others who become confirmed Covid-19 infection cases. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
