Giving up privacy in the name of public health

"In recent news, Google and Apple teamed up to build a Bluetooth-enabled feature that sends alerts to users who might be in close contact with an infected person. But associate professor of law Ryan Calo argues that having the ability to follow every citizen with their phone is not the power that he wants the government to have beyond the pandemic. 

“One of the concerns that I have is that the power given to the government will continue after the pandemic and that people will get acclimated to the new normal where government surveillance is commonplace,” Calo said."
