    Even if few use them, contact tracing apps may eventually be used for nefarious invasion of privacy against a miscreant’s political opponents.

      As could their Facebook profile. As could the GPS on all our phones. As could any number of ‘face-swapping’ app’s. As could their Google Home or Alexa device. As could their smart TV. The list goes on, but only ONE of those 7 (including any contact tracing apps) is meant to actively try to slow the spread of the virus.

        “…. but only ONE of those 7 (including any contact tracing apps) is meant to actively try to slow the spread of the virus….”

        As could immunization with a vaccine.
        As could herd immunity gained through exposure of those who are least susceptible to severe effects of the China Wu WHO Flu (virus).
        As could social distancing.
        As could shutting down businesses that politicians, jurisdiction by jurisdiction, determine are non-essential – in their opinion.
        As could hand washing.
        As could wearing effective masks.
        As could several current drugs that have shown promise as preventatives or cures/ treatment.
        As could …..

        But only ONE of those (including contact tracing apps) could be used for nefarious purposes against the liberties and freedoms of those whose political opinions differ from those of the miscreants’.

          As DID shutting down visits to the US by Chinese nationals once the risk was known and credible.

      QYogi,
      Are you and this president opposed to any and all efforts to slow the spread of this pandemic? Does the MyPillow guy have his poisonous flower and moonshine concoction cure ready for us?

      “May” is in the title of this article. Not “will”. “May”. Same as my first sentence in the OP of this thread.
