The new GeoHealthApp enables users in Germany and Switzerland to determine their individual infection risk for COVID-19, thus making a pivotal contribution to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV2.
Through a traffic light system on their smartphone display, users receive information about individualized current infection risks. The information results from the frequented locations of the past 14 days as well as personal information related to symptoms. An interactive map shows areas with high infection rates, that can be avoided. The provision of personal data is voluntary and anonymous. No personal data is passed on to any third parties.
After successful launch of the Betaversion some weeks ago, GeoHealthApp today announced the launch of the app that will enable people to protect themselves more quickly and better against pandemic crises, in particular against the current COVID-19 spread.
The app is free of charge in Germany and Switzerland and can be downloaded from the App Store and the Google Play store.2404_geoHealthApp-Onepager-AJ
