"Across the world, governments, and health authorities are working 
together to find solutions to the COVID‑19 pandemic, to protect people 
and get society back up and running. Software developers are 
contributing by crafting technical tools to help combat the virus and 
save lives. In this spirit of collaboration, Google and Apple are 
announcing a joint effort to enable the use of Bluetooth technology to 
help governments and health agencies reduce the spread of the virus, 
with user privacy and security central to the design."
