Coronavirus: Trudeau announces nationwide COVID-19 contact tracing app

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a nationwide COVID-19 mobile contact tracing app on Thursday, which will notify users if they’ve come into contact with the novel coronavirus.

He said the app, which was developed by the Canadian Digital Service in cooperation with the Government of Ontario, Shopify and Blackberry, would soon begin testing in Ontario and would be available across the country as of July.

Trudeau said the government has worked with the privacy commissioner on the mobile app, adding that no personal information will be collected or shared and that it would not use location services or geotagging.

  7. Can we all just get over ourselves cause guess what plant earth has a 100% Death Rate on one gets off alive. What we should worry about is what kind of planet and social structures  we are leaving behind for our children and grandchildren. One where the 99% is enslaved by the 1% sociopath. That wants to force inject us with what ever DNA altering toxic stew whenever they feel like it. Where there is no freedom to travel sell or buy. Unless you have a COVID= ( Certificate Of Vaccination ID )  Hopefully this will wake people up and we can have a phone smashing tea party. Like the Boston tea party.

You may just as well announce the "discovery" of Area 51, NSA, or the AT&T Building in New York City. You could announce the discovery of Area 18 (Division No. 18) in Northern Saskatchewan. Maybe they exist and maybe they don't exist.

  14. Yeah sorry bud I'm not gonna spend half my day checking my phone worrying if I might've been near someone who has the flu
