Ireland’s Covid-19 tracker app reaches over 1 million downloads in one day

HSE CEO Paul Reid said one million people have downloaded Ireland’s Covid-19 Tracker app – just over a day after the app was launched.

“The app wont make you immune to the virus but it can help to reduce the risk. Lets keep it going,” Reid said on Twitter this evening.

“By far the most successful launch of this app anywhere in the world,” Reid said earlier. “Well done Ireland. Please keep it going and protect everyone by downloading it now.”

The app is intended to help contact tracing, particularly with people who aren’t family and friends. It uses Bluetooth technology to determine whether you’ve been a close contact of someone who’s tested positive for the virus.
