Apple and Google join hands to fight COVID-19 using contact tracing

Apple and Google say that starting next month they’ll add new features to their mobile operating systems that make it possible for certain approved apps, run by government health agencies, to use Bluetooth radios to track physical proximity between phones. If someone later receives a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, they can report it through the app, and any users who have been in recent contact will receive a notification.
