The German government has officially introduced the Corona-Warn-App, which helps to determine whether a person has been in contact with another person infected with Covid-19, and whether there is a risk of further infections. The application makes it quicker to break the chain of infection. The app can be downloaded, and used on a voluntary basis, from the App Store and Google Play.
