Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There was a lot of hype about various apps in development, debate about whether location data would centralised or stored locally on phones, and concerns about the accuracy of distance measurement to help protect privacy. Also, something like 60% of people had to install them for them to be effective.

Much less hype about them now, and no plans to go live that I have heard. I don't think preliminary testing has been positive, and I suspect public health authorities have gone cold on the idea.
