The contact tracking app named “Wiqaytna,” (which means our protection in Arabic) uses Bluetooth to compile a list of people that the user gets in contact with. Should any of these contacts test positive for Covid-19 in the 21 days following the contact, the app will alert the user and Ministry of Health. The Ministry of Health can then determine whether quarantine is needed. The App is available on Google Play and the App Store.
