China as made an application that can discover corona victims without using a testing kit.

In January, when officials in ­Wuhan, China, declared a citywide quarantine  to contain the coronavirus, they enforced the order with old-fashioned barricades. Walls of bright yellow and blue plastic sealed off streets, bisected neighborhoods, and isolated 11 million residents in their homes, initiating the largest lockdown in human history.

Those barriers started coming down after Wuhan lifted the lockdown on April 8. By the time shops opened, and residents ventured out, authorities had introduced a more modern method for isolating those at risk of infection. At checkpoints throughout the city, police and security guards demanded that anyone seeking to come and go present a QR code on their mobile phones that rates the user’s risk of catching the coronavirus. Green codes granted unrestricted movement. A yellow code required seven days of quarantine. Red meant 14 days of quarantine.

Local governments created the algorithms behind the ratings at the behest of China’s State Council and rolled them out in Wuhan and hundreds of other cities on apps hosted by China’s largest tech companies: Alibaba Group, Tencent Holdings, and Baidu Inc. To receive a rating, users must download an app embedded in one of the tech giants’ ubiquitous payment, messaging, or search engine platforms. The apps work differently by city and province, but they typically require users to register with basic information—name, national identity card number, phone number, and home address. Subsequent questions are more invasive, quizzing users on health status and travel history, and asking them to identify any close contacts diagnosed with the virus.
