The COVIDSafe App is designed to give state and territory health officials the ability to quickly identify people who might have come into contact with a person who tests positive to coronavirus."

"The more people that download the app, the more confidence the National Cabinet will have about that one aspect of our preparedness that we're still a little bit anxious about — the capacity to really get on top of contacts as soon as possible," Professor Murphy said.
