Great explanation how contact tracing can be done right, fully respecting privacy. https://ncase.me/contact-tracing/

The CCC, German's most reliable technology activists, explain the conditions to make this work and have promised to warn about bad apps. I will listen to them. https://www.ccc.de/en/updates/2020/contact-tracing-requirements
As this toot went viral and there are many techies on Mastodon, let me add a list with COVID-19 contact tracing projects around the world. https://github.com/shankari/covid-19-tracing-projects
New post. A privacy respecting track and trace app to fight Corona is possible and effective https://variable-variability.blogspot.com/2020/04/privacy-track-trace-app-corona.html
The above toots are about the technical implementation & theoretical effectiveness of a track & trace #CoronaApp. But to make it work a lot more is needed: fast testing, paid sick leave, possibility to quarantine, warning should count as "sick certificates" & wide adoption of an app that helps others.
I think it could work in social democracies like Germany, but elsewhere???
