As seen on Calcalist “Israeli Ministry of Health Partners With GlobeKeeper for Voluntary Civilian Monitoring App”

Israel’s Ministry of Health intends to launch a voluntary surveillance app for monitoring coronavirus (Covid-19) cases early this week, according to one person who spoke to Calcalist on condition of anonymity.

On Thursday, the ministry applied with the Government Procurement Administration for an exemption from a tender requirement regarding a contract with Tel Aviv-based startup GlobeKeeper Tech Ltd. to develop a mobile app to help slow down the spread of the virus. In its request the ministry stated the current reality urgently “requires tools for managing and monitoring coronavirus patients.”

Founded in 2016, GlobeKeeper develops military-grade tactical and strategic operation systems, utilizing the existing capabilities of mobile devices, including GPS location services, Bluetooth connectivity, and built-in cameras. The company has raised $2.45 million to date, according to Pitchbook data, and its main backer is Tel Aviv University’s venture arm, TAU Ventures.
