    BERLIN, July 31 (Reuters) - The European Commission said on Friday it had signed a contract for SAP and Deutsche Telekom 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. (Reporting by Douglas Busvine; editing by Thomas Seythal)
