>Virus warning app launched
德国推出病毒预警应用
Germany launched its official COVID-19 warning app which was now available for download to smartphones, the government announced on Tuesday.
德国政府6月16日宣布,推出官方版新冠肺炎预警应用,目前该应用已可以在智能手机上下载。
Released by Germany's disease control agency Robert Koch Institute, the app informs citizens who had been in contact with an infected person in order to detect and break the chains of infection.
这款由德国疾控机构罗伯特•科赫研究所发布的应用会对接触过新冠感染者的市民发出警示,以便发现并打破感染链。
German Health Minister Jens Spahn stressed that the app was "not a panacea, not a free ride ticket, but it is an important additional tool in containing the pandemic."
德国卫生部长延斯•施潘强调,该应用并非灵丹妙药,也不是免费车票,而是遏制疫情的重要附加工具。
Downloading and using the app was "a small step for each of us, but a big step in the fight against the pandemic," said head of the Chancellery Helge Braun, adding that citizens could rely on high standards of data protection.
总理府部长黑尔格•布劳恩表示,下载并使用该应用对我们每个人来说只是一小步,但对抗击疫情来说却是一大步。布劳恩还说,该应用在数据保护方面采用高标准,值得信赖。
The app was based on a "decentralized software architecture" which stored data on the mobile phones of users instead of a central server.
这是一款"分散管理软件架构"型应用,数据是被储存在用户手机上而不是中央服务器上。
