What are the best coronavirus apps?
A free Covid Symptom Tracker is available for people who want to educate themselves on the illness and help researchers gather more information.
The app asks users to fill in data including age, sex, postcode and their medical conditions, including whether they take any drugs like immunosuppressants or ibuprofen.
Users can report each day on whether they are healthy and answer questions on any possible symptoms.
Created by nutrition company Zoe, 650,000 people had signed up within the first 24 hours – with initial analysis showing 10 per cent of people were showing mild symptoms.
Another app, The Coronavirus App provides users with an interactive map so the infected areas are highlighted.
It provides a break down of the spread of the virus and the numbers of people affected by the virus.
