COVID-19 Tracking App Concerns
Last week, the media reported that Apple and Google had joined forces to create a COVID Contact Tracking App (CCT app). Various journalists touted the app would be secure and completely anonymous. Anyone who used it would maintain their privacy. Some reports had local healthcare providers sharing patient data to the app, others claimed users would self-report. One reporter claimed it was the only sensible way to restart the economy. And another stated they trust Apple and Google to build a system to protect their health data.
