Paris : CEVIPOF
For several weeks now, the French government has been discussing the possibility of using mobile phones as a tool to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

In Singapore, the government has launched an application called “Trace Together” that enables mobile phone users to voluntarily share their locations.

Two companies with a near duopoly on smartphone operating systems, Google and Apple, have taken the unprecedented step of working together to develop contact tracing technology in order to help public authorities create a common software tool.
