The Swiss Parliament announced on May 25 (local time) that it has started the pilot phase of the contact confirmation app “Swiss Covid” for the coronavirus infection (COVID-19). This is the world’s first pilot of a contact confirmation application that uses an API jointly developed by Apple and Google.
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology employees, military personnel, government officials, medical institution employees, etc. participate in the trial of the app. The pilot phase continues until the end of June, confirming usability and technical issues before the app is released to the public.
According to a national survey conducted at the end of April, about 70% of the total population positively see this app.
