Switzerland’s coronavirus tracing app explained

Switzerland in June rolled out a mobile phone app to alert people who have come into contact with coronavirus carriers. In this interview ahead of the release, Mathias Wellig, CEO of Ubique, the company hired by ETH and EPFL to develop the tool, says it is designed to protect the identity of users and prevent their data from being used for other purposes. Andrea Büchler, president of the National Advisory Commission on Biomedical Ethics, says the voluntary app is part of a broader anti-COVID-19 strategy that includes traditional methods for monitoring the virus.
