Singapore hands out coronavirus tracing devices
Singapore has started to hand out Bluetooth-enabled contact tracing devices as part of its measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
The so-called TraceTogether tokens are an alternative to the government's contact tracing smartphone app.
They are aimed at people who do not own or prefer not to use a mobile phone.
The announcement of the device was met with concerns in some quarters over privacy.
The first batch of the devices are being distributed to vulnerable elderly people who have little or no family support or have mobility problems.
The tokens have unique QR codes and do not need charging as they have a battery life of up to nine months.
