So let me get this right with this app. You go to Tescos one day, someone who never got closer than 30' to you but was in Bluetooth range then gets symptoms and triggers the app, you then get a message saying stay at home for two weeks, really, that's never going to work is it??

BTW I'm not too bothered about privacy on my phone. I've got nothing to hide

Poor old Dave Greenfield he gave the stranglers that Doors type of sound, what a shame. I got all the albums until Hugh Cornwell left, they were never the same after that. That makes JJ Burnell the last original member in the band. Jet Black the drummer is now 81 and is too old to play
RIP Dave you'll be remembered for that dodgy tash and some great music

Fair point fishie - wouldn't take me a moment to take the bank app off for a while...

As for the 'human rights' issue, I do find that people are sometimes selective in which of these they see as important while ignoring or dismissing others... (the right to asylum in other countries to escape persecution comes to mind...)

let's see what the pilot test throws out eh?

meanwhile I'm off to buy up as many 'burner phones' as possible to sell on ebay.


BB - I'm sorry but that one's gone over my head...


edit - Chuffy - I saw that too. No More Heroes should be required listening for any budding keyboard player...

I don't think you'll get much argument with any of that.

Except the bit about the antivaxxers having the moral high ground. They haven't got anything, including a coherent argument. They are self-obsessed, dangerous nutters.

they'll need to teach the over 70's how to use a bloody smart phone first

Anyway, in other news, Dave Greenfield the keyboard player from The Stranglers has died

Why do people think they are that important that the government needs to track and control them. 66 million in the country so possibly a high proportion have smart phones. So possibly 25 million smart phones. How many civil servants would it take to control, monitor and report on all these very important people.

Surely in these times a track and trace for CV can only be a good thing to eradicate and remove it from society. Yes it probably impinges on your human rights but at this stage I think its a positive tool to grab a hold of the virus.

If the government or other agencies want to track you they can at this time using not just mobile telephones! If you are that worried, dodgy or don't want to be traced use a non smart phone without GPS, etc..... or don't load the app. But like anti-vaxxers get everyone else to do it and they can hold the moral high ground protected by the majority.

And as Mal pointed out he has his bank details on his phone, I would suggest if you're worried remove the apps temporarily.

Hi Mal,

The fact that you revealed yourself as a teacher of drama and performing arts and your association with carp fishing, has solved a puzzle I had, when the penny finally dropped.
It must have been you who taught Tim Richardson his song and dance routine that he performed on that talent show.

BB.

No apps required as virus would appear to be far less deadly than originally thought according to Germany and reported on the BBC......

The number of people in Germany who have been infected with Covid-19 could be more than 10 times the number of officially confirmed cases, according to a new study.

Researchers from the University of Bonn estimate that about 1.8 million have contracted the coronavirus. Germany has about 160,000 confirmed cases and 6800 deaths.

The study - which has yet to be peer reviewed - focused on a sample of 919 people living in a town in the municipality of Heinsberg, one of the worst-hit areas of the country.

The study also found that more than one in five people infected showed no symptoms.

Love the BBC......

'aisle of white...'

I can see a lot of people being reluctant. I mean the tinfoil hat brigade are going to just explode over this aren't they?

To be honest you'd have to be pretty naive to think that your smartphone / online presence isn't already giving away information about you, from buying habits to interests to who knows what. just look at the pop up ads that appear while you are on the forum... You look at something on your phone and then ten minutes later it pops up at the top of your laptop screen.

It seems the initial apps don't necessarily meet some of the standards for security so that's a worry. I wouldn't want that on my phone next to my online banking app...

So they've launched the tracker app on the I.O.W. today (btw, anyone work at B&Q or similar? If so, do you call the part with all the big buckets of cheap emulsion The Aisle Of White? If not, why not?).

How do you feel about installing an app created by Dominic Cummings' mates? Civic duty and all that, but will enough people go for it? Is there any sort of incentive, a weekly prize draw or similar?

I spoke to a woman in Poland today, there under quarantine having arrived from Italy. The govt there send her up to 3 sms messages a day, at any time, to which she must reply with a selfie. They check the gps location of the phone to make sure she hasn't left home. If she doesn't comply or proves to be out of the house - 5000 euro fine. Poland have less than a thousand deaths so far.

Bit of good news re the London Nightingale Hospital.

Currently has 20 patients and when they're discharged they are sending staff and PPE elsewhere while they put it on standby.
