Apple and Google, the world’s largest providers of mobile operating systems, have teamed up to introduce the Exposure Notification system to contribute to the global fight against the Covid-19 epidemic. The system has a technological solution that does not collect, store or transmit any personal information such as name, number, location, and other personal information.
Currently, the system is used by more than 130 million people in more than 60 countries to fight coronavirus infection and the State Emergency Committee of Mongolia has made it possible for our citizens to use the COVID-19 ERSDEL in Mongolian and English with the support of E-Mongolia.
The COVID-19 ERSDEL system will allow citizens to be notified in a timely manner of possible coronavirus infection. It also plays a key role in facilitating the detection and surveillance of patients and contacts with coronavirus infection.
How COVID-19 ERSDEL system works:
- Using Bluetooth technology creates random identifiers which are change every few minutes. Therefore, your phone needs to have Bluetooth turned on and it does not drain your battery.
- Information of location is not monitored or collected
- No personal information will be collected, stored, or shared.
- Mobile data does not require.
- You will be notified if you were close to an infected person and you might be infected.
If you use an iPhone, on versions of iOs 12.5, 13.7, or later, the system can be found at Settings.
For Android, you can download the COVID19 ERSDEL application from the Playstore.
The system will be available next Monday, April 19.
