BBC: Coronavirus UK application must respect privacy rights



An open letter published by a group of “responsible technologists” warns that if corners break, public confidence in the NHS will be damaged.

And it urges those responsible to be more open about their plans for data collection, reports BBC.



South Korea, Singapore and Israel are among the countries that have already deployed applications that can help authorities track who users have come into contact with to help model the spread of the virus.

Taiwan has also introduced what it calls an “electronic fence” system that alerts local police if a quarantined user leaves their home or turns off their cellphone for too long.

And in Europe, a number of mobile network operators have offered to provide anonymous data on users' movements to help identify potential “hot spots” where the virus may be most at risk of spreading.

Prime Minister's adviser Dominic Cummings organized a meeting in Downing Street on March 11 in which dozens of tech industry executives were asked how they could help develop an application to handle Covid-19 in the UK. But there is no official announcement of what he will do or when.
