As the NHS contact-tracing app is rolled out across the Isle of Wight this week, Digital Health News is asking for reader’s opinions on the technology.
We are asking three questions, which cover a number of issues that have been raised about the app, which uses Bluetooth technology to alert users if they have come into contact with someone experiencing coronavirus symptoms.
Once a user inputs their symptoms the app automatically logs the distance between their phone and other phones nearby and provides advice accordingly.
Questions range from the NHS’ approach to the app, to concerns readers have.
You have until 12pm on May 13 to cast your vote and we will publish the results shortly afterwards. You can vote below.
