The 2019 Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by a quick dissemination of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has had a deep impact worldwide, both in terms of the loss of human life and the economic and social disruption. The use of digital technologies has been seen as an important effort to combat the pandemic and one of such technologies is contact tracing applications. These applications were successfully employed to face other infectious diseases… Expand

Quantifying SARS-CoV-2 transmission suggests epidemic control with digital contact tracing
A mathematical model for infectiousness was developed to estimate the basic reproductive number R0 and to quantify the contribution of different transmission routes and the requirements for successful contact tracing, and the combination of two key parameters needed to reduce R0 to less than 1 was determined.

Quantifying SARS-CoV-2 transmission suggests epidemic control with digital contact tracing
It is concluded that viral spread is too fast to be contained by manual contact tracing, but could be controlled if this process was faster, more efficient and happened at scale. Expand
A rapid review on the effectiveness of digital solutions to contact tracing during infectious disease outbreaks to assess the benefits, harms, and acceptability of personal digital contact tracing solutions for identifying contacts of an identified positive case of an infectious disease. Expand
Use of a mobile application for Ebola contact tracing and monitoring in northern Sierra Leone: a proof-of-concept study
There were considerable challenges to conducting high-quality contact tracing in this setting using either the paper-based or the app-based system, but the study demonstrated that it was possible to implement mobile health (mHealth) in this emergency setting. Expand
