Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing

The Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (PEPP-PT) makes it possible to interrupt new chains of SARS-CoV-2 transmission rapidly and effectively by informing potentially exposed people. It is a large and inclusive European team. PEPP-PT provides standards, technology, and services to countries and developers.

Viralert has embraced PEPP-PT because it is a fully privacy-preserving approach to contact tracking and because it is Pan-European. We want to build on well-tested, fully implemented proximity measurement and scalable backend services. Viralert want to help implement and enable tracing of infection chains across national borders and provide an imeplementation for the Netherlands.

The Viralert initiative adopts PEPP-PT because of its privacy-preserving approach to contact tracking and Pan-European ambitions.
