When will the pollen app arrive?

The Ministry of Health had announced that a free app would be offered at the beginning of 2020 that would provide citizens with information about pollen concentrations in the air. After more than three years, this app still does not exist. DP MP Carole Hartmann therefore asked the Minister of Health where the work on this app is at and who has been entrusted with its development?

Question

« Dans sa réponse à la question parlementaire n° 632 en avril 2019, l’ancien Ministre de la Santé avait annoncé qu’une application mobile gratuite serait développée début 2020 afin de faciliter l’accès des personnes allergiques aux informations sur les concentrations de pollens dans l’air.

Il est certain que la pandémie a eu un impact sur le calendrier de développement d’une telle application mobile. Néanmoins, trois ans se sont écoulés depuis le lancement prévu.

Par conséquent, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Madame la Ministre, le développement d’une application mobile  est-il toujours en cours ?
  • Dans l’affirmative, quand les personnes allergiques peuvent-elles s’attendre à sa publication ?
  • Qui a été chargé pour développer cette application ? »
