16 Nov, 2020

CDSA Deputy Director Nina Anchugina presented on ‘Covid-19 Contact Tracing Apps:  What works?’ at the Chief Data and Analytics Officer (CDAO) NZconference in November.

Nina shared insights from CSDA’s 2020 working paper Digital Contact Tracing for COVID-19: A Primer for Policymakers, with a focus on:

  • The technical pre-requisites for a useful contact tracing app;
  • The level of take up required for an app to be useful;
  • The importance of social licence; and
  • How the roll out of NZ’s “Covid Tracer” compared internationally.
