A coronavirus tracing app, called COVIDSafe, has been released in Australia to contain the spread of the deadly pandemic. The app is considered to be essential for Australia to be able to ease coronavirus-induced restrictions. 

After you download the app you will be notified if you have had close contact with another user who tests positive for COVID19.

The app has two stages of consent that you would need to agree to: initially when you download the app so data can be collected, and secondly to release that data on your phone to health officials if you are diagnosed with the virus.

Australia's Chief Medical Officer, Chief Nurse and the heads of the doctors' and nurses' unions said they will download the app and encourage you to do the same.

You can download the app at:
