 COCOA, a new corona contact confirmation app, has exceeded 20 million downloads

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has revealed that the number of downloads of the “New Coronavirus Contact Confirmation App” (COCOA) reached 2001 million as of 5 pm on November 17.

COCOA is an application that uses the Bluetooth function of a smartphone to notify you that if you have been in contact with a person positive for the new coronavirus infection within 1 meter and for 15 minutes or more, you may have detected a close contact.

To be notified, you need to enter the 8-digit processing number issued by the health center. In addition to saving the contact history only in the device, personal information is also taken into consideration, such as being automatically deleted after 14 days.

In addition, there was a report that the COCOA function would be disabled if the backed up data was restored to a device equipped with iOS 14.0 or iOS 14.1 due to a model change, etc., “Q & A for contact confirmation application users” I am calling to confirm.
