For this reason, many of the measures that they are taking the governments are focused on limiting the contact between people, forcing them to have a minimum distance in social interactions.

To help in this strategy against the coronavirus Apple and Google have announced a partnership that will engage their mobile, the iPhone and the Android devices.

The intent of both companies are going to launch several APIs for applications and services and other integrated solutions within Android and iOS. The idea is that using bluetooth technology can alert a user as to whether he is or not in contact with someone who has the coronavirus.

As is logical, this plan will develop very quickly, although it does not dispense with the solutions that increase the privacy.
