Singapore give out contact tracing devices to the elderly and vulnerable

June 29, 2020

While many countries have struggled with Covid 19 tracing apps, Singapore are taking a different approach entirely. They’re targeting users who hate the idea of using the app due to privacy concerns … giving out Bluetooth-enabled contact tracing devices.

TraceTogether tokens are aimed at people who do not own or prefer not to use a mobile phone. The first batch of the devices are being distributed to vulnerable elderly people and those  who have little or no family support.
