They're worth plenty to the companies secretly sucking up all that sweet sweet tracking data, though.

And don't try to tell me "...but but but it's Europe and they respect privacy and don't allow secret data mining!" They're mining your data too, Eurotrash.

Tracing only works well if there are a relatively small number of cases.

For a larger number, the corresponding tracking data become huge...and increasingly useless as the number of possible exposures skyrockets.

Tracing data will be useful after we really have this thing beat.

If governments were only allowed to use FOSS, then we could be sure that wasn't happening.

I have the app here in Denmark, and its developed by the Danish government.

The data it is mining, is where I have been, at which times, which is required for the app to work.


About 20% of Danish citizens have installed the app., 12.5% of people diagnosed with Covid-19 has used the app. to warn their contacts.


That's not hugely successful, but well, 12.5% is better than 0%.


Oh, and only morons like you, talk like the person you used in your example.
