Is contact tracing important to contain coronavirus infection? And above all, who can help us do it? These are very current questions, especially in Italy. For this reason, the news just struck by the American agencies regarding an agreement between Apple and Google could be of great interest precisely for the Italian government which should shortly present the local app.
The two undisputed big names on the web, in fact, have announced a historic collaboration to find solutions to the coronavirus pandemic. And thanks to their firepower (i.e. the iOS and Android operating systems, primary duelists of the mobile market) they are finding a technological way to help governments keep the spread of the infection under control. A road that, apparently, pivots on the use of Bluetooth technology. And it can count on the interoperability of the two operating systems.
Contact tracing can help slow the spread of COVID-19 and can be done without compromising user privacy. We’re working with @sundarpichai & @Google to help health officials harness Bluetooth technology in a way that also respects transparency & consent. https://t.co/94XlbmaGZV

To help public health officials slow the spread of #COVID19, Google & @Apple are working on a contact tracing approach designed with strong controls and protections for user privacy. @tim_cook and I are committed to working together on these efforts.https://t.co/T0j88YBcFu
