Description
Rapid, accurate, timely contact tracing is critical to containing the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the process is time consuming and relies on a diagnosed person to recall everyone they may have come in contact with in the past two weeks. To augment this manual approach, an MIT team has developed an automated, smartphone-assisted approach using Bluetooth that permits effective contact tracing while preserving privacy.
