Thursday 28 May 2020 | 10:21 CET | News
The planned StopCovid contact-tracing app is one step closer to being implemented by the French government, after it was given the green light by the lower and upper houses of parliament. The National Assembly and the Senate voted in favour of StopCovid on 27 May, paving the way for the deployment of the app in the coming days. This follows the conditional approval given by data protection authority CNIL, which detailed the conditions under which the app should be deployed on 26 May.
