Most countries have enforced lockdowns and self-quarantine measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic and keep their citizens safe. For this, governments are leaning towards technologies that could keep track of affected people to restrict further pandemic spread.
The Government of Rhode Island was keen on developing a contact tracing solution to help people and state officials slow down the spread of coronavirus while protecting the citizens’ privacy. This solution could also assist the state in reopening businesses while reducing community transmission.
