ViruSafe has been developed by Scalefocus. The app was approved by the Bulgarian Ministry of Health on April 4 & published on the Google Play Store on April 7.

It’s a multi-purpose app, that doesn’t use Bluetooth for tracing, but only GPS location. Besides being an information app about COVID-19 emergency in Bulgaria, such app includes indeed a health status tracker/diary & a location tracker, that allows sharing GPS coordinates with the Ministry of Health.

After installation, the first step is an OTP validation via SMS. Then, the user must enter his personal ID or passport number.

When registered users allow to share their GPS coordinates, the server renders infection & risk-area heatmaps.
