70% of people surveyed said they’d download a coronavirus app. Only 44% did. Why the gap?

The Australian government’s COVIDSafe app aims to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and let us all return to normal life. But this promise depends on how many Australians download and use the app. Only 51% of survey participants said they supported linking the number of COVIDSafe app downloads with an easing of lockdown restrictions.
