Coronavirus App – level 2
The companies Google and Apple are working together. They want to make a software that will help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
People who want to use the system must install a special app in their phones. This app connects people via Bluetooth, and it traces people who have the coronavirus.
If a person has the coronavirus, he can decide to share this information on the app. Other users will get notifications if they came into contact with this person.
Many countries in the world came up with a similar idea. However, they usually had problems with privacy or connection. Google and Apple hope that they can solve these problems and that their software will work well.
Difficult words: trace (to find the place where someone or something is), notification (when someone gets a message that informs him about something important), privacy (when someone keeps his personal information for himself).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
