Britain scraps virus tracing app for Google-Apple system

Published Thu Jun 18 2020 15:58:42 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Britain is scrapping plans to launch its own coronavirus contact tracing smartphone app because of technical problems and will now work on building one using technology supplied by Apple and Google. The government’s app had been undergoing trials on the Isle of Wight, and was expected to be rolled out to the rest of the country later. But officials overseeing the app’s development said they couldn’t overcome a number of technical challenges they found during field tests with the app. Governments around the world have been turning to smartphone technology to help battle fresh virus flare-ups as they ease lockdown restrictions.
