We did not install any tracing components in the app.   “It is purely a digital tool to assist citizens to record their visit history of different venues and to provide exposure notification, in case he or she had close contact or appeared in the same venue with a confirmed COVID-19 case.”   Mr Wong added that the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app has been downloaded over 2.96 million times, with the majority of downloads in Hong Kong.   “We did a rather comprehensive check of this mobile app’s download rate from around the world. Our finding is that over 97% of the downloads are from Hong Kong app stores. The remaining 2% to 3% are from other app stores around the world.”
