USA Today reports that adoption rate of COVID exposure notification apps is so low that they have been effectively useless.

On April 24 (above) I predicted these apps would be useless, and it looks like I was right. I was also right that the app would be well-done on a technical level but fail on the reporting side. But I was wrong that people would spam the system with false reports; instead of too many, the problem is that there were too few.
