This is our dangerous Covid blind-spot, in reality the Government is authorizing this company to spy on UK citizens obtaining personal information that doesn’t have the remotest connection to tracking and tracing infected individuals for Public Health reasons or securing their isolation to halt the spread of the disease.
The government was not interested in the most important piece of data gathering which is an early assessment of the number of people infected overall, thereby missing a very important piece of information. To learn about a new disease you need to diagnose all cases and outline the natural history of the disease. It is also important not only to test and identify infected individuals with any degree of severity of symptoms, and to track all contacts, but also to isolate them, that means a proper medical quarantine not just advise to stay at home and infect your family. A basic defect of the policy adopted, due to unwillingness for the state to provide adequate medical quarantine was that it is practically impossible for most people to effectively self isolate in a small flat with several individuals and children crowded together in lockdown. This, I am sure is one of the factors why ethnic minorities and the poor have been inordinately hit by this virus. It is of course easy to self isolate in the big houses of the rich, with several rooms and ensuite bathrooms, or even to have the luxury to travel 264 miles to self isolate in a cottage belonging to your father.
At no point including currently, have the basic public health measures for dealing with epidemics been applied.
