StopCOVID Proximity App Launched in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland’s Covid-19 contact-tracing mobile phone app has become the first in the UK to launch.

StopCOVID Proximity App aims to help prevent the further spread of infections by informing people when they have been in contact with an individual that has received a positive coronavirus test. The app will advise them to self-isolate, breaking chains of transmission, and slowing the spread of the virus.

By the end of July almost 1.45 million people in Ireland had downloaded it since it went live in recent weeks.
