Liechtenstein adopts biometric electronic bracelets for nationwide health monitoring


Liechtenstein is the first European country to use biometric electronic bracelets to implement a real time coronavirus tracking programme. The bracelet, which sends skin temperature, breathing, and pulse, among other metrics, for analysis in a Swiss lab, is being offered to 5% of the population. The country, which acted early to prevent the epidemic, plans to roll the bracelets out to the entire population by autumn.
