Singapore contact tracing app made mandatory for migrant workers


Singapore has launched a new FWMOMCare mobile app for workers to record daily symptoms and report their health status. Reporting symptoms prompts the worker to seek medical assistance; a doctor will also be alerted and call the worker within 30 minutes for a teleconsultation. Employers are told to encourage all workers to download the app, but it is mandatory for certain groups of migrant workers who live or work in higher risk settings such as dormitories and temporary quarters.
