BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Commission said on Friday it had signed a contract for SAP SAPG.DE and Deutsche Telekom DTEGn.DE to build a software platform that would enable coronavirus contact tracing apps to exchange information.

The two companies, designers of Germany’s Corona-Warn-App downloaded more than 16 million times, had proposed creating the gateway to share infection warnings between national apps with the goal of enabling safer cross-border travel.
