Binghamton University Article About NOVID
It's been four months since NOVID has been up, and it is starting to get more well-known!
“Part of the appeal of NOVID is that it’s not created by a big company that sells your information and uses it to their own advantage,” Zweig said. “It’s created by actual scientists and mathematicians, who care about creating better public health.”
“With other contact-tracing apps, [they] only use Bluetooth, whereas this app also uses ultrasound,” Zweig said. “Other apps might pick up you being exposed to somebody if they are a floor above you, because technically you are within distance that would lead to you being exposed. With NOVID they use ultrasound, so it’s a lot more precise.”
