    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesia launched the PeduliLindungi app to control the pandemic in the country. The app comes under public attention as its downloads and use are encouraged—even mandatory for public transportation purposes, among others.

    The app is equipped with various capabilities, including detecting the location of a Covid-19 patient in a public facility. Antara reported that in one month the app detected 3,389 people infected with Covid-19.
