Download iKaren Now: Will You Use a COVID-19 App to Save the World?

Governments and private companies — from California and the U.K. to Apple and Google — race to create apps that track COVID-19 infections. As far as we know, they currently rely on voluntary reporting by people who test positive for the novel coronavirus. Will you download the COVID-19 app — perhaps called iKaren — to save the world? Will you report your positive test, or change your behavior when you get a proximity alert?

  2. I turn my data off when I'm not using my phone.. Don't do socialist media, and I have a nice computer with an ad blocker to surf..

  3. Pretty soon you’ll go to leave your house and your door will be locked and not let you out. A little screen near the door will tell you you’ve been quarantined because your neighbor heard you cough.

  4. I just went ahead and made my family wear NBC (nuclear biological chemical) suits around. Because my absolute safety is worth far more than my quality of life.

  5. If you think for as much as one second, that people won't get doxed behind this,,, Look, the wuhan flu was initially addressed as a seriously deadly epidemic,,, but 15 minutes later, when it was recognized as nasty, but with a VERY specific target group, the left quadrupled down on the restrictions; not because it was designed to keep anyone 'safe', but to accustom people to having their government ride roughshod over the population, at will. That's the way the facts seem to line up, from here.

  6. Far left Massachusetts – I was OK with a 2 or 3 week lockdown to prevent emergency room overcrowding but wow we are way into overkill territory – Still locked down and with flu season fast approaching threats of even stronger lockdowns are upon us. The lockdowns have the state $10Billion in the red yet not even one government employee has been let go.

  7. are they going to force positive cases to download a gold star of david app for their phones?

  8. Forget the app. Read this: You want a vaccine? You got it! Coconut oil kills, treats or prevents virus, bacteria, fungus and mold. To get an interactive search file send email to ( this file was first produced 6 years ago.

  9. FYI guys, your content no longer shows in my feed. I have to enter your entire name to get the page option to show up. You need to move to a different platform.

  10. I have a flip phone. It's new. I intentionally chose a flip phone to avoid this kind of crap.

  11. When I was living in Miami I talked to the relocated Cubans who lives under communism. They describe communism on a neighborhood level that is essentially what you described about reporting. People would be taken away by reports !!

  12. The new Califophobian self flagellation AP is here! Jeebus is there no end to the rampant idiocy, whats next, no wait! Please don't tell me, I can't take more.

  15. It's not. Ok ! This is how it started in China , now people make points by telling on other people. That is all this is about .Like the Nazis got people to look out for the Jews and tell on them.

  16. I don't care if Charlton Heston descends from Stone Mountain bearing two still smoking stone tablets carved by the finger of the godemperorTrump himself I will NOT install a government tracking app!

  17. Lol, “covid crush” games!
    Some people just thrive off of power tripping or policing other people. There are too many Karens in California. I feel like we live in a foreign communist country already.

  20. I have a personal computer and have many expensive graphics software loaded on it. My cell phone? I've never downloaded an App and will never download an App from anyone for any reason. I use my phone for phone calls, texting, and check my email with apps already installed. So will I download this App? No.

  21. I'm not a trained scientist, but those who test positive with no symptoms, isn't that just having Antibodies?

  22. NO! And I will not either because – if you would believe the Government (here in Australia) they are saying that they will keep your personal data secret and 'not' keep track of where you are…but they are considering making a 'tracing' app COMPULSORY, along with the mandatory acceptance of a vaccine INJECTION or tablet which can be filled with everything or anything that they want..
    WITHOUT our knowlwdge.

  23. A covid Icon popped up on my husband's phone a few months back. After someone at his work supposedly tested positive, we can't remove it.

  24. "I swear by Apollo Healer, by Asclepius, by Hygieia, by Panacea, and by all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.

    To hold my teacher in this art equal to my own parents; to make him partner in my livelihood; when he is in need of money to share mine with him; to consider his family as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if they want to learn it, without fee or indenture; to impart precept, oral instruction, and all other instruction to my own sons, the sons of my teacher, and to indentured pupils who have taken the Healer’s oath, but to nobody else.

    I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgment, and I will do no harm or injustice to them. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly I will not give to a woman a pessary to cause abortion. But I will keep pure and holy both my life and my art. I will not use the knife, not even, verily, on sufferers from stone, but I will give place to such as are craftsmen therein.

    Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick, and I will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, especially from abusing the bodies of man or woman, bond or free. And whatsoever I shall see or hear in the course of my profession, as well as outside my profession in my intercourse with men, if it be what should not be published abroad, I will never divulge, holding such things to be holy secrets.

    Now if I carry out this oath, and break it not, may I gain for ever reputation among all men for my life and for my art; but if I break it and forswear myself, may the opposite befall me." – Translation by W.H.S. Jones

  25. 1918 was the result of brand new "science" of inoculations – when covid hit, I got curious ..

  26. 99.93% survival, gas station sushi has a lower survival rate than that. I was all for the first few weeks, but cmon people the science is in. Get over it already… take off your mask and go the hell back to work

  27. Alert, you were near a conservative and may have been harmed by illegal thoughts. Please report to camp 112 for re-education.

  28. In the U.K. this stupid App gets downloaded and installed WITHOUT YOU KNOWING or CONSENTING!!!
    When I last visited my Parents, IT WAS ON MY DAD's Smartphone, and he DID NOT download it himself.
    He immediately uninstalled it.
    Go Pop!

  29. Many employers are making contact tracing software mandatory for staff because the employer is liable in court, common law not government law. These tools are useless medically at this stage but useful as a defense in a court room. They were useful very early but Singapore was the only country that got it working early.
    I have to fill out a statement per shift stating the I don't have symptoms [list] and have not been to the following places [list] where out brakes have occurred. For a staff member with ten shifts in the day that's ten forms a day. It is 100% about avoiding law suits. The organization runs care facilities including nursing homes. One of the nursing homes was decimated by an out break that made national news and raised questions in parliament. The legal angle is huge and very real.

  30. What if, to incentivize self-reporting, they coerce you. What if they remove a feature like GPS from your phone until you self-report your test results.
