Coronavirus: London, Ont., team creates tool to measure effectiveness, privacy of COVID-19 apps


A duo out of Western University in London, Ont., has created a new tool that they say will help provincial and national policymakers make decisions on which of the “near-endless stream” of contact-tracing apps to utilize.

Public health officials use contact-tracing, or CT, as part of efforts to limit the spread of infectious diseases, like COVID-19, by identifying and subsequently isolating close contacts of a confirmed case to help “break the chain of human-to-human transmission,” Western University says.
