Government and trusted health authorities provide the most useful information. However, it often is not contextualized and personalized. For instance, in Israel the government publishes epidemiological studies of each patient tested positive for COVID-19. But this information is too voluminous to be useful. So Track Virus makes it personally contextual and timely - allowing each individual to understand their own level of risk, and that of anybody they come in contact with.
