Apple and Google are rolling out a new COVID-19 tracking app that will allow authorities to track down and isolate those who may be suspected of having coronavirus.

The program will turn almost all phones on the planet into a way of tracking COVID-19 spread. It will use Bluetooth to determine if someone, at some point, got close to an individual with coronavirus.

The software will allegedly be pushed to users' phones automatically without their consent. Governments have been participating in the development of the code in order to maximize the efficiency of the system's rollout.
