Spanish technology company Indra has been awarded a EUR 1.74 million contract for the maintenance, support and evolution of Spain's Covid-19 tracing app, reports Europa Press. The app, dubbed Radar Covid, was launched earlier this year following trials managed by Indra in the Canary Islands. It has been downloaded more than 5.58 million times and "is emerging as a very useful tool to support contact tracing and contribute to the containment of Covid-19 transmission," according to the government.
