Singapore to distribute wearable contact-tracing device and won't rule out making it compulsory

Drew Scriver


I might believe a government that claims that it's not a tracking device if the devices are not registered to an individual. After all, if the only purpose is to check proximity to a known COVID-19 patient this could be done wholly separately from PII.

Given the (scant) details it looks like I don't have to worry about whether this eventually will be used to track people and to see its application extended beyond COVID-19. It's a given.
