When StopCovid was launched, the contact tracing application requested by the French government was quite strict and limited to just informing users whether or not they were around someone infected with covid-19. .
In view of the failure of this first version, new functions appeared with the launch of the new version called TousAntiCovid. This makes it possible to know the number of nationally and locally infected people or to fill out their discharge certificates directly. These innovations seem to be valued by the French and so far 12,104,744 net registrations have been registered.
A daily increase in the number of people vaccinated
In an interview yesterday further RTLHealth Minister Olivier Véran has announced his intention to use TousAntiCovid to promote the vaccination campaign. In particular, the app could thus display the number of people vaccinated daily in France.
“” That sounds like a great idea to me. I think we will. We want to communicate transparently. Again, it is a matter of 48 hours before the information systems are fully functional and you have the number of people vaccinated. “He states.
The minister also noted that TousAntiCovid could allow the French to schedule a vaccination appointment. Please note that you can also register by telephone and over the Internet.
An important question remains to be answered: What about compliance with the confidentiality criteria? We know that TousAntiCovid has not yet collected any personal data. However, this may be necessary to schedule an appointment for a vaccine. According to our colleagues from BFMThe idea would be to add a registration form to the lists of the vaccination campaign, as is done for travel certificates. Saving this file on the smartphone would not require recording in a database. However, the problem of submitting this vaccination application without exchanging data remains.
