BI Discourse 2 about the Corona App

In recent weeks, the discussion about the Corona warning app has led more often to the question of to which extent we can trust the manufacturers of the operating systems of our smartphones. Even the German Federal Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, was rather sceptical about this in April 2020.

We are using this as an opportunity to address in a short comic strip the role of the app on the one hand, and the role of the operating system and hardware and their manufacturers on the other hand.
