The Australian Government today launched its latest initiative to control the spreak of the COVID-19 viris with the CovidSafe App.

Along with the App for Apple and Androd mobile devices, the website has also been setup to fully explain to users how the app works, including what data it stores and collects.

Health minister Greg Hunt launched the app earlier today – you can view highlights of his speech on the 9News website.

Should you install the COVIDSafe App?

I will be and I encourge others to do so too, however I’d also highly recommend visiting the website so you can get a good understanding of how the app will function and benefit us all.

Listen to Health Minister Greg Hunt explaining the purpose of the App from today’s media conference.
