Raquel Corrêa Cordeiro, Claudia Mont'Alvão, Manuela Quaresma


In a world concerned with the coronavirus pandemic, many governments do not know how to control the disease.

We selected the applications based on how they captured data, privacy issues, citizen participation, and the main challenges faced. Later, we created the app journey map to compare them and discovered the most used technology is Bluetooth, and the apps often have open source. However, these initiatives bring superficial insights and need to integrate with more complex data.
