It has been more than two months since the Canadian government launched COVID Alert, Canada’s novel coronavirus-exposure app, but federal data obtained by Global News shows very few Canadians are using the voluntary COVID-19 app.
Just five of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories have officially adopted it, and about 10 per cent of smartphone users have downloaded it. In Ontario, just four per cent of people with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis have logged their test results since the app was launched on July 31.
Global News investigates why the app is not as effective as it could be in slowing down the spread of the novel coronavirus in Canada.
