The Telegraph reports that the NHS or National Health Service has reportedly “intensified” talks with Apple engineers over its COVID19 app. This comes after the UK government initially rejected the API offered by Apple and Google, instead opting for its own system

The rollout for the NSH “contact tracing” app has been bumpy. Only just recently did the NHS say they were open to transferring their system to the one that uses Apple and Google’s API.

Multiple countries are debating whether to use their own system or the one by the Silicon Valey giants. The question over the API’s privacy, reliability, and effectiveness have engulfed the whole atmosphere around any sort of COVID19 app.
