In order to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, Singapore has announced that it'll launch a wearable Bluetooth based device to track the spread of the coronavirus. This comes after the developed apps sometimes have connection problems when running in the background of the phones and is a step towards higher inclusivity as not every person is the possession of a smartphone.
