Launched earlier today, the COVID Tracker App has had 545,000 downloads as of 5pm, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn stated.

He commented, “The app is an important tool to support our contact tracing systems. It has the potential to reduce the time that people are active in the community with infection, which will have a significant impact on the transmission of the disease. The more people who download and use this app, the more effective it will be. It is a further opportunity for us to play our part in the response to COVID-19”.
