Japan rolls out COVID-19 contact tracing app
Japan has released its own contact tracing app, which has been developed with the support of Microsoft. Officials hope it will stop a second wave of COVID-19 in the country. They hired a selection of Microsoft engineers in May to develop the app. Japan has so far managed to keep its number of COVID-19-related deaths below 1,000. Governments globally have suffered delays in releasing similar apps.
