The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (Kosei Rodosho – 厚生 労 働 省) launched the Contact Confirmation Application for the coronavirus (which is abbreviated as COCOA). With this app, the user will receive a notification if there is a contact with people who tested positive for the coronavirus.
It is believed that the more users of this app, the greater the prevention results against the coronavirus. So Mie Prefecture asks all citizens to install and use the app.
How to install the application
