Immune: Italy Also choose the Apple-Google. Wins the decentralized model

This is confirmed Vittorio Colao, in an interview with the Corriere della Sera. Finally a right choice on the part of Italy that has abandoned the idea of using a centralized system in favour of the solution, it was designed by Apple and Google, the easiest to adopt, the one that will have the greatest chance of spreading, hedging, and above all the only able to work on iOS devices.

The news is now official: The application Immune will use the API developed by Apple and Google with the Notification of Exposure to trace outbreaks from COVID-19. This API has been introduced for the first time in iOS 13.5 released just yesterday in beta version.

Has been chosen for the centralized system, which kept the identity of all contacts. And was chosen the other solution, that the Apple-Google. The contacts are only on the mobile phones of the people. When I find out to be infected, I put in a code, which releases a series of codes to the people with whom I came in contact with. Everything is done anonymously: the individual is informed by the system, but the system does not know who are the two subjects; the privacy of the two individuals is retained. No one knows the other.

The criteria for the implementation of the application are contained in the decree-law that will be discussed in the next Council of ministers for the time being, has circulated a draft. Among the novelties, there is the provision that requires the deletion of all the data collected by the system at the end of the emergency or in any case not beyond 31 December 2020.

We are very happy that Italy can use the Apple model-Google because, otherwise, the application Immune would not work properly on iOS, proving to be perfectly useless. The use of this application to draw the infection from the Coronavirus instead, it will be essential and useful to keep under control the epidemic and to come out in the shortest possible time. Help to quarantine more quickly in the case in which we had had contacts with a positive and will reduce the number of outbreaks, as well as make it less hazardous to the asymptomatic. In all this is never revealed the name of a positive person, or if you know the location. Not even who will be notified via Notification of the Exposure will go up to the person who has been infected but will be transmitted only the information and the invitation to make a buffer. With the app you are Immune, the smartphone does not spierà users as they think the people with the most ignorant on this matter, it will use the GPS, nor will be shared, personal and private information.

There are still uncertain times and this is unfortunately there is a bit of pessimism. You are concerned that you will not be able to complete in a short time, and Colao in the interview closes by saying:

It is important to launch it by the end of may; if this summer we will have all, or almost all, of the asset; otherwise it will serve little use.
