Over 1m people share position because of coronavirus

(ČIA) Over one million people have actively involved themselves in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus in the Czech Republic by sharing their position in the Mapy.cz application. Seznam.cz added that apart from gathering anonymous data, the application also had its own reporting system for which almost 300 infected or potentially infected persons had registered using an online form. Thanks to their involvement, the application was able to send a hundred warnings about an increased probability of COVID-19 infection to the users. The development team has also optimised battery consumption for position sharing and has prepared a new layout for the project’s website.
