The new application for monitoring contacts with COVID-19

The proposal for Act on intervention measures to prepare for the second wave of coronavirus COVID-19, which amends and supplements temporary measures to mitigate and eliminate the consequences of the epidemic in the field of labour, employment, scholarships and social protection, is pending before the National Assembly. Among other things, the proposal is interesting because it contains a basis for the introduction of an application for monitoring contacts with COVID-19 infected people and quarantine control, which could prevent the possible need for stricter territorial closure in the event of mass use. The Ministry of Public Administration will be responsible for the establishment and operation of the mobile application.

Installation and use of the application will be voluntary and free of charge, except for those persons who have been confirmed to be infected with COVID-19 or have been ordered to be quarantined. In this case, the person must install the mobile application so that a random code can be entered into it.

The purpose of the application is to inform its users about the existence of the risk of infection, because they were nearby or in contact with another user with the same mobile application who is infected or quarantined. The application contains a recommendation that in case of obvious symptoms, the person should immediately call the chosen personal doctor or the emergency medical service.

The mobile application will not be allowed to identify the user, collect information about his location and his other personal data. The government claims that the use will not involve the processing of personal data.
