World Corona warning app is expanded with check-in function and vaccination pass
How Australia's gone from being envy of world to global embarrassment
Australia was once the envy of the world by almost completely eradicating the virus after swiftly shutting the borders and introducing a series of Covid-safe restrictions. There have been 29,437 just Covid infections across the country and 910 total deaths - a tiny fraction of the death rate in other nations. Among those tough stances taken to control the virus spread was a ban on almost all outward travel, with special permission required and rarely granted.

New features should further improve the warning effect.The official Corona warning app of the federal government is expanded with new functions for pandemic control. So the latest version 2.0 of the , which should be available for download at the latest on Wednesday, to expand a check-in function. Thus, above all, risky encounters of people indoors should be better recorded. In future versions, a digital vaccination certificate should be displayed even before the start of summer holidays. Users could demonstrate that they have been completely vaccinated. In addition, the results of quick tests should be displayed in the app.
With the new check-in function in version 2.0, the app makers respond to new insights: So far, the app registers only persons who have finished for a long time at a distance of two meters or less than risk contacts. However, investigations had shown that this is not enough. In closed rooms such as shops, restaurants or churches, the aerosols spread over greater distances. In addition, air particles that were exhaled from infected are still present in a dangerous concentration even if the person has already left the room. These findings are now taken into account in the new app version.
Qantas boss says Australia should open international borders
Qantas boss Alan Joyce has declared Australia should open its international borders as planned in late October - before criticising the government's snail-like current vaccine rollout. Joyce has urged the government to be proactive when it comes to mass vaccinations, and stressed the nation can't afford to 'fall behind' compared to other countries.'There should be no reason why we don't open up international borders,' Joyce told reporters on Thursday, just days before the trans-Tasman travel bubble officially launches in New Zealand next week.

Annastacia Palaszczuk admits you can't go abroad even after vaccine
The Queensland leader said she had significant concerns about whether Australians vaccinated against Covid-19 should be allowed to quarantine at home after returning from overseas. A recent study in the UK found the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine can block 75 per cent of symptomless infections. But the British government has also warned the vaccines available globally might not protect against the spread of highly-infectious strains like the South African variant.
apps like Luca, Darichrein.de, Recover or E-Guest are Especially intended to digitally implement the collection of persons in restaurants, shops or events in the federal states.

Although the German Corona warning app with 27 million downloads is the most successful application for digital contact tracking in Europe, the efficacy of the app is repeatedly questioned. So Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) had explained the application for practically ineffective last October: "The app is unfortunately a toothless tiger," says Söder in an interview at that time. "She hardly has a warning effect."
This impression is refuted by current numbers from the circles of the Federal Government. In the past four weeks alone, 79,000 users and users have warned their contacts about a positive test result. A positive message dissolves on average warnings to six other people. Four out of five people who receive a red warning message in the app, then complete a test. At seven percent, Corona infection is positively demonstrated.
If you consider these numbers, the app presumably a total of around 2.5 million people were warned against a risky encounter with others and ultimately recognized 140,000 COVID 19 infections. dpa
