Many uninstall Covid-19 track and trace app

National News // July 14, 2020

More people are uninstalling the Covid-19 track and trace app. Figures from Sunday show just over 950,000 have the app but that’s down by around 10,000 from before the weekend.

Last week the app had more than a million users. 

Over the past week only 70 people entered a code into the app to show they’d tested positive – in the same time frame, 600 had tested positive. 

The Federal Health Office is asking the major mobile operators to send an SMS message to customers asking them to download the app. 

The operators have also agreed to pay any data charges related to the app usage.
