Basically…with Stephanie Preissner | What’s The Story With The Covid Tracker App, Jess?

On this week’s Basically… Stefanie talks to Newstalk’s Tech Correspondent Jess Kelly about the new Covid Tracker App.
What should we do if it tells us we’ve been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19? What does Google and Apple have to do with this? Is the app useful if you don’t put in your name or other details? What else can the HSE use your information for? Will the government have too much information on you? Who is the app targeted at? What happens if you tell the app you’re not feeling well? Will the app work when we go abroad? Why is it not available to under 16s?
