The new Google app “Corona Waze” asks users to “tag” individuals who sneeze, cough, are sweating or have a runny nose. You can also tag people who do not use soap or wash their hands for at least 20 seconds, or for other social distancing violations.

For now, only those with high risk scores will be allowed to get tested.As reported by The Seattle Times:4

“The U.S. government is in active talks with Facebook, Google and a wide array of tech companies and health experts about how they can use location data gleaned from Americans’ phones to combat the novel coronavirus, including tracking whether people are keeping one another at safe distances to stem the outbreak …

The early, unprecedented collaboration between Washington and Silicon Valley reflects the urgent, nationwide scramble to stop a deadly malady that has shuttered businesses, skewered the stock market, sent students home from school and now threatens to overwhelm the U.S. medical system with patients in need of critical care.”

According to The Seattle Times,5 “dozens of engineers, executives and epidemiologists” are also urging Apple and Google to use their data-gathering expertise to “help doctors determine people who were in contact with a patient that later tested positive for coronavirus.”…
