Apple wasn’t told UK was developing a ‘hybrid’ COVID-19 app with its tech

Britain’s contact-tracing shambles suffered another setback today when Apple revealed it didn’t know the country was developing an app with its tech. In an embarrassing U-turn, the UK government announced yesterday that it was dumping its home-grown app for one based on Apple and Google’s decentralized model. Health Secretary Matt Hancock claimed the transition would be simple, as the country had “backed both horses” by testing the two systems before scrapping its in-house app. Hancock said that...
