The tracking app meant to determine the pathways of infection by the Coronavirus has met some criticism. The Saxon Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) said that the Corona app does not guarantee sufficient security. It is important to maintain a safety distance of 1.5 meters and to wear a mouth and nose protection, Kretschmer said.
A spokeswoman of the Green party said the app is not a panacea. Instead, tests should be expanded and health authorities should become more active in determining pathways of infection. The Corona app is designed to show whether a smartphone user was in close proximity to someone infected with the Coronavirus. The app is supposed to be ready to go by mid-June.
