An official app on COVID-19 by WHO has been released

It contains only confirmed information on the number of infected, dead and recovering people in the world, as well as news, facts, and advice.

The World Health Organization has released the WHO COVID-19 application, which provides official information on a new coronavirus infection, as well as the latest information on infections in the world, answers to the most frequently asked questions and much more to keep people informed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new application was originally announced two weeks ago under the provisional name WHO MyHealth. It was initiated by a team of volunteer experts from former Google and Microsoft employees, as well as WHO advisors and ambassadors. WHO COVID-19 is now available early in the Google Play store. The iOS version is being moderated in the App Store and will be available in the coming days.

In the app, you can find the latest global and local news on coronavirus, various facts, tips, and other useful information. Even more important is the link for donations to the Solidarity Fund to help fight against COVID-19.

In the future, the developers want to add a location tracking feature for those users who have been directly affected by Coronavirus. In this way, the MOH hopes to better understand the spread of the virus. However, given the obvious privacy issues of opening access to location history, it remains to be seen whether this feature really needs to be run.
