How will coronavirus contact tracing apps work? Apps to combat Covid-19 are riddled with practical pitfalls and privacy problems

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Dr Claudia Pagliari was interviewed in April for this investigative article about emerging contact tracing apps, which appeared in the May/June issue of PC Pro.  She comments on the difficulty of deriving value from these apps in the absence of mass testing for COVID-19 and the need for strong governance to ensure users' privacy isn't compromised, particularly given the increasing role of global technology companies in NHS IT initiatives.
