Maybe 2 million people use the app, but that means 20 million don't.

Also the 2 million who did install the app probably have no idea what it really does, and think its going to save them by knowing they walked past someone once in the street who had coronavirus, when in fact 99.9999% of the time it wouldn't have a clue if your paths have crossed with someone with the virus, and it certainly won't be notifying you about that, and the only people its really even likely to match you with is one of your family or close friends.
