Apple & Google – Towards Safe Future

Corona virus has been discovered 2 decades ago. One of its kind has been rediscovered in January 2020 in China and since then the whole world is at the edge of life. Due to this pandemic, people have been into the stage of social distancing for a long time.

As this spread of this virus is thrice times more than the normal viruses and it takes 14 days to actually show its symptoms, which means that for the last 14 days if there is any such contact on your side, you would not be able to detect it from your side.

Moreover, did you even remember all the people that you have come in contact with for the last two weeks? Do you remember the person you mistakenly touched ta the bus? Or the taxi handle you touched, or may the kid standing next to you at the grocery store? Well, its difficult to remember every person you have come in contact with over the past fourteen days. Here’s when you can use your phone using Contact Tracing method to find out the positive patients that were near you.

How Does Contact Tracing Works?


Now, how does it actually work? This is simple and not really a rocket science. Using this software, you can send signals from your apple or android devices to all the people to the people who have the same signals turned on their mobile phones. Your phone will be able to detect and save the signals catching from the people who were near you during the past 2 weeks.

So if unfortunately, any patient takes its test and it turns out positive, he or she will be able to warn the people via the Bluetooth frequency that has been catch from the people with the same contact tracing apps. It gives you the COVID-19 alert about the sick person that was near you (on daily basis). However, the application still cannot tell who that exact person was.

So if the person actually gets sick, they need to voluntarily report to the application so that the other person gets the notification and do something to save themselves from this virus.

The apple and android are working together so that they can generate ways to work together with sharing their Bluetooth frequencies. Moreover, there are a few challenges that might get along the way of these two tech giants.

One of them is the trust issues that people might have using this application. Oh yes! people need to feel secure and know that they are not been traced by anybody using the application. Apply and google are working on ways to generate the safest methods to do that for people.

The next challenge is to convince people to download the applications. These are public service health apps which are rarely downloaded by anyone. People show lack of their interest and that’s is where all of the problems lies. Even after downloading, substantial people to actually use it is one of the issues that Apple and Google has been facing.

Well, we hope that they find a way and this whole idea actually gets handy so that we can save as many lives as possible.

Well, stay safe, wash your hands, and happy social distancing!
