Is Germany’s ‘Corona-Warn-App’ a success?

Hosted by

More than 14 million people have downloaded Germany’s COVID-19 contact tracing app. Before its launch last month, the German government project came under fire over data security and privacy concerns. So does it work? What are users saying? And what questions about the app still need to be answered?

This week, Studio Berlin host Sylvia Cunningham breaks down the pros and cons of the “Corona-Warn-App” with Thomas Leonhardi, spokesman for the software giant SAP; Günter Voß, coordinator of the Senior Computer Club in Berlin-Mitte; Chris Köver, journalist for the website Netzpolitik.org and Svea Windwehr, Mercator Fellow on International Affairs.
