The Corona-Warn-App, downloaded more than 18 million times since its launch in June, was touted by the government as a key tool in the country’s effort to contain the spread of the virus.

The app, like others in Europe, has suffered a number of technical hiccups, but Health Minister Jens Spahn insisted it should be considered a success. He noted that most app users can now get their COVID-19 test result sent directly to their smartphones, without having to wait for their doctor to inform them.

“The faster transmission of test results makes a huge difference,” Spahn said, adding that the tracing of possible contacts is all the more effective the sooner it begins.

Almost 5,000 people with positive test results have so far used the app to warn others they were in close contact with, he said.

Spahn said the warning messages displayed by the app, which have caused confusion and annoyance among some users, would be improved to provide clearer guidance.

Germany has seen a rise in coronavirus cases in recent weeks, though the increase hasn’t been as sharp as in many neighboring countries.

The Robert Koch Institute, Germany’s disease control agency, recorded 1,769 additional infections in the past 24 hours, taking the total to 275,927 since the start of the outbreak. The death toll in Germany, a country of 83 million, stood at 9,409, an increase of 13 from Tuesday.
