Dear Mr. President,
As COVID-19 continues to remain a global challenge, my thoughts are with you and the people of Uruguay. I hope you, your family and your team are staying safe, and, on behalf of Google, I would like to extend our appreciation to you and your government for your proactive efforts to ensure people's health and well-being.
It has been a pleasure for Google to work with your government on the Exposure Notification initiative. We greatly appreciate the determination and thoughtfulness that your team has brought to the engagement. As we approach the launch of Uruguay's app, I wanted to extend our gratitude and congratulations to you, Minister Omar Paganini and the whole team of policymakers and developers who contributed to the successful effort. With its innovative approach to harnessing technology for social good, Uruguay will be the first country in Latin
America to launch an app that integrates our Exposure Notifications API, a tool that I hope will aid in addressing the challenge at hand.
We recognize that our efforts-and this project-address only a small part of the challenges confronting Uruguay at this time, but I wanted to let you know Google stands ready to support your efforts to deal with this crisis. Our team in the Southern Cone continues to be at your disposal; please do not hesitate to reach out.
CEO, Google and Alphabet
