“An inbox needed to be created to process contacts who indicated they had symptoms or were in touch with a person with Covid-19. This inbox needed to be sorted, according to risk, and available to medical staff. The type of risk was defined by a team of epidemiologists from the Ministry of Public Health. In the middle of the pandemic, they processed these contacts and coordinated either a medical consultation or a swabbing”
