It is based on data such as the movement of persons, or the declaration of symptoms. Much of the information that could be used for purposes broader than the fight against the Covid-19.

A QR code in variable color, and a mark out of 100 will be awarded to each inhabitant.

The city has not specified how these data will be collected, or at what stage was the design of this tool. But the system put in place to combat the epidemic of Covid-19, now integrated into the daily life of a large number of Chinese, would greatly facilitate its adoption.
