Health Minister Hugo de Jonge plans to use software to combat the spread of the coronavirus. "Two apps will soon be at the core of the new testing policy, he said, but development of the apps has not been completed. One of the apps would be used to track who someone infected with coronavirus has directly contacted, and to help determine the source of an infection cluster. "This is only possible if we are very careful with privacy," he said. De Jonge said it could also be possible for the app to send a push notification to someone who has been in contact with an infected person. The second app would be used by someone to monitor their own symptoms. Photo by Robin Utrecht/ABACAPRESS.COM
