NHS COVID-19 App
Over 14 million people have downloaded the new NHS COVID-19 app since it went live last week.
The app is used alongside traditional contact tracing, to notify you if you've come into contact with someone who later tests positive for coronavirus.
It helps the NHS understand where and how quickly the virus is spreading, so it can respond quickly and effectively. The app helps the NHS track the virus, not you individually.
It uses your smartphone’s existing “Exposure Logging” feature to work out if you have spent time near other app users who have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
