While COVID-19 cases continue to hit new highs in Taiwan due to the spread of the unforgiving Omicron variant, you might be wondering how long will it take before you get infected with the virus; especially if you have not been vaccinated. Even if you are vaccinated, you may still have similar fears.
The “Taiwan Social Distancing” app has been created to improve COVID-19 monitoring in order to reduce the risk of community transmission. It uses Bluetooth to detect nearby users and record your duration of distance from each contact.
The app will alert you about any contact you have had for more than two minutes with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days so you can monitor your health status.
