The jewish State will be used by means of digital tracking of its general security services to track people who test positive via their mobile phone.
“We’re going to use the digital means we have to fight against terrorism”, warned Sunday the israeli prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu stated that he received permission from the ministry of justice.
The resources of the Shin Bet, the general security services, should therefore be used to track down the Israelis tested positive for coronavirus and, more generally, those quarantined. And this, through the data of their mobile phone, “and other technologies”.
It is a matter for the prime minister, to give the possibility to trace the movement of citizens, but also to identify individuals, cross-tabulated by those tested positive Covid-19.
For the prime minister, such a measure ” will not disturb those who do not comply with their quarantine and put others in danger “. Voices were raised, however, to denounce the invasion of privacy.
Faced with 298 cases of coronavirus, according to the point made on Monday by the ministry of health, the State of Israel puts in place measures more stringent. The filtering cell of the sick, however, is not a first in the world, it is used mainly in Taiwan.
