According to a report published in Reuters, the app has a success rate of 95 percent, and the company hopes to commence commercial roll-outs of the app by the end of May.

The Managing Director of Semic RF, Wolfgang Gruber, told Reuters that the company had “managed to isolate COVID-19 from over two million different shades of pink”.

Explaining the usage of the app, he said, “take your app, take a picture of both eyes, send it for evaluation, and then you can have the evaluation stored as a QR code on the tested person’s smartphone”.
