Bad becomes good
Huawei ..... oh yes: 5G rollout.
Way back in the beginning of time (i.e. December 2019, before Coronavirus took over every news channel) there was a bit of a kerfuffle about the UK using Chinese kit in its nascent 5G network. Doncha know? they might spy on us. Just imagine!
Three months later and governments all over the world are considering ways to do just that. To track their people and see who they come in close proximity to. It seems to me that this "spying" stuff is ideally suited to this application. And since the Chinese seem to be ahead of the game in mass surveillance, they could probably supply a turnkey system to fully integrate with their 5G systems. To do just what governments now consider a valid reason to "spy" on us all.
