Åbo Akademi University encourages students and staff to use the new coronavirus tracing app
The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare has launched the new Koronavilkku application, which contributes to preventing the spread of coronavirus.
In a joint statement, the Rectors of the Finnish universities recommend that the entire university community uses the app.
“Universities with tens of thousands of students and employees have a significant responsibility to do their part to curb the corona outbreak. By using the tracing app, we can together contribute to a safer study and work environment for everyone. I encourage all of our students and staff to download the application”, says Åbo Akademi University’s Rector Moira von Wright.
With the help of the Koronavilkku app, everyone can help prevent the spread of the virus, and protect their health. The application makes it easier to get hold of people who have been exposed to the virus and break chains of infection.
The Koronavilkku app can be downloaded for free. The app is currently available in Finnish and Swedish. An English version will be available later this autumn.
