As the world moves into the next phase of the fight against Covid-19, governments are loosening lockdown measures and assessing strategies intended to contain new spikes and control the rate of infection.
Contact tracing has been touted as a potential game-changer, with several countries around the world releasing apps that alert those who have come into close proximity with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19. Yet in many cases uptake has been slow and there has also been significant debate on both user trust and the associated data privacy concerns.
This interview focuses on:
- The important role of data in the fight against Covid-19
- A global view of contact tracing apps (their development, positives and negatives)
- Underlying privacy concerns when utilizing healthcare data
