Ratings and ReviewsSee All
To the reviewer who thinks 10 days is wrong; that it should be two weeks, therefore the App is flawed... Two weeks pertains to the quarantine period for someone suspected of exposure but not showing symptoms. It can take up to two weeks to incubate. 10 days refers to the other quarantine, the one where you are at the point that one is exhibiting symptoms consistent with Covid 19, but mild and not requiring medical intervention. It’s 10 days after symptoms appear that you must isolate, as it is contagious 8-9 days from the onset of symptoms. This is a common misunderstanding of the 2 different durations relative to the reasons for the quarantine.
Useful app but not stats are not updated daily.
The app makes the whole iPhone frozen sometimes
This app can sometimes make the whole iPhone frozen for a few seconds. You can’t even kill it during those times!! Very frustrating!!
