It is said that eRouška does not work as imagined. This is also due to the small number of installations

According to hygienists, politicians and other experts, the eRouška mobile application, which had the potential to become a very important part of the so-called Smart Quarantine in the fight against coronavirus spread, does not fulfill its primary role. The main reason is mainly the fact that she actively usinginsufficient number of people. The head of the government’s IT team is satisfied with its functioning, but the hygienists hardly work with it at all. Thus, eRouška does not (yet) work according to the original ideas of the public and experts.

eRouška – Part of Smart Quarantine

The tool lost its original purpose, ie to help trace infected people to the database of hygiene stations, several months ago. The moment he started alerting the user to a possible encounter with an infected person. Hygienists continue to rely mainly on self-draining forms that people fill in manually. Unfortunately, eRouška does not serve a new purpose very well either. About one and a half million people have it installed.


“In order for it to really work as planned, to have an impact on people’s behavior and for the warning to be effective enough, it would need to be used by two to three times more people,” thinks Michal Bláha from the State Guard project. He adds that one of the reasons for failure is, according to him promotion failed. “We cannot say that the government has done everything possible to make it work better. It is mainly due to the communication – she did not continue the communication, she solved other things. The state really can’t influence similar applications and people’s behavior, it can’t do marketing and communicate why it’s important, “he adds.

eDoes don’t be afraid

There is no way to limit or endanger you in using the eToucher, so there is no reason why you should be afraid of it. Every other user will help to improve the system on which it is based. Even if you are not convinced that it is beneficial for you, it can really help not only you but also your loved ones.

According to chief hygienist Jarmila Rážová, however, the Ministry of Health is not planning any further campaign to support the application. eRouška really had great potential, however, it does not work as planned yet due to people’s lack of interest. Will the current lifting of the emergency situation and the onset of a new virus mutation, combined with the need to re-inform people about the right behavior, manifest itself in this? We’ll see. Government Commissioner for IT Vladimir Dzurilla is meanwhile satisfied with the result of the team’s work. “We expected more, we thought we would have around two or more million people. Even so, it’s a great number, we’re glad we got that far, “he says.
