1.3 million Australians download Covid tracing app

Agency News

Some 1.3 million Australians have downloaded the government's COVIDSafe tracing app since it was launched on Sunday.

Health Minister Greg Hunt says the app is necessary to help "disease experts find people who might have been exposed" and that its adoption had exceeded expectations.

The surge in downloads as a new poll showed Prime Minister Scott Morrison's approval rating rise to 68 percent on his handling of the outbreak, the highest approval rating for an Australian leader since 2008.
