Predictions are used to provide personalized recommendations to the individual via an app, as well as to send anonymized messages to the individual's contacts, who use this information to better predict their own infectiousness, an approach we call proactive contact tracing (PCT).

Manual contact tracing of Covid-19 cases has significant challenges that limit the ability of public health authorities to minimize community infections.
