COVID-19 app: NHS reveals source code

The NHS is launching the first phase of a national programme to track down and stop the spread of coronavirus.

If you develop symptoms of coronavirus, the app will:

  • anonymously warn other app users who have been near you

  • provide advice from the NHS on the right action to take to help stop the virus spreading further

  • help you to get a swab test

This is essential in allowing the country to stay one step ahead of the virus.

The app is being launched on the Isle of Wight as part of the first phase of a large-scale, integrated phone-based contact tracing and swab testing programme. This will play a central role in how the UK manages the rate of coronavirus transmission going forward.
