Apple and Google Unite to Slow Down COVID-19

Apple and Google are working together to develop software aimed to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

Ths collaboration between two of the most powerful tech companies will work towards developing a contact tracing app that will connect a phone with other nearby phones. People who have been exposed to the virus and have opted into the system will be alerted, and the software will also alert those who have been in a nearby radius. 

Even though it does not replace testing, it will aid in tracing the virus and slow down the spread. Yet both Apple and Google must also work to attenuate concerns over privacy and centralization risks.
