The current coronavirus pandemic is forcing a change in how countries across the world adopt technology to save lives and to warn and inform the public of the changing situation. Public warning systems can help throughout every stage of the pandemic whether a country is entering lockdown, emerging from confinement or is returning to normal with measures to prevent new cases emerging.
In addition to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, countries within the European Union have until June 2022 to comply with Article 110 of the ‘European Electronic Code for Communications’ (EECC) – which requires all EU member states to transmit public warning messages through mobile phone networks.
Countries that invest today in mobile based public warning technology will not only manage the coronavirus effectively, but will be better positioned to respond to the next critical event beyond COVID-19, and automatically comply with EU regulations.
