According to the Secretary of Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence, Radar COVID is already connected to the interoperability node of the European Commission. What does this mean? That, when the application is updated in the next few hours, we may receive risk contact alerts from users of these apps from European countries.
Specifically, SEDIA indicates that Radar COVID will be able to communicate with five European applications, increasing this list “in the coming weeks”, in which more applications will be added. For the time being, this is the list of supported apps.
- CoronaWarnApp : Germany
- Immuni | Italy
- Covid Tracker : Ireland
- StopCOVID 19 : Croatia
- ApturiCovid : Latvia
As we’re told from SEDIA to Xataka Mobile, the operation of the notifications will be the same as when we use it in SpainIf you are a member of the team, we will receive notifications from those users who have reported their positive results through the application.
The Secretariat informs that they have already launched the new version of the app for iOS in the App Store and Android in Google Play, and that it will be available for download in the next few hours. On a privacy level, they continue to insist that Radar COVID does not identify or geolocate the userso it remains anonymous.
