Task 1: Introducing DT’s


An example of Digital Technology is an app which is being used mainly in the UK in order to track the number of positive cases of COVID-19. The app ‘pings’ whenever people have been in close contact with the virus and then instructs them to self-isolate.

I found a news article on this app (linked below), which did not have the greatest review of this app. I found it interesting that most people in the UK found this app a nuisance rather than a helpful source. It was stated in the article that hospitality industry complained about the app as it has caused shortage of staff due to them having to self-isolate due.

Though, the app doesn’t have many popular opinions. It is still considered to be an example of Digital Technology and an innovative when in attempt to control the virus.
