In the fight against COVID-19, countries are taking urgent actions to address the crisis. Some are turning to tech to find solutions for containing the spread of the virus. Digital contact tracing, in particular, is gaining a lot of traction. For example, Apple and Google recently announced a rare collaboration to jointly facilitate contact tracing within their mobile platforms for public health monitoring applications.
