Persuasive Intent

Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains says the federal government is still trying to work out how Canada can use technology to fight COVID-19 through contact tracing — the critical public health measure of tracking people who may have been exposed to the virus.

The practice involves finding those who have come in contact with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and alerting them of the potential need for testing or self-isolation.
