Chinese city plans to turn coronavirus app into permanent health tracker
Officials in Hangzhou say system will be a ‘firewall to enhance people’s health and immunity’
A Chinese city is planning to make a health-tracking app introduced as part of the coronavirus response a permanent fixture for its population of 10 million.
Versions of the app have been used across mainland China. It displays a QR code with an individual’s virus status, which can be used to determine the extent to which the individual is allowed to move about.
