Yup and to think you had a panic attack not to long ago when all 3 phones in your house went orange.anyone thinking the technology is spyware clearly has the technical understanding of a dead duck. Because its been taken apart and studied and the protocols its using have been studied ad nauseum.
The problem is however, its nonsense for 2 reasons;
1. It depends on the person who is infected to actually say so. How many people will do that?
2. Any bored 15-yr old with a phone can install it and mark themselves as infected while they hang out at the mall setting everyone's phones off after 10mins or so of proximity.
You will never have true contact tracing while people have a choice. Chip implants or some other form of bio-metric marking that is controlled by a 3rd-party would work. Like making everyone get a chip implanted (just something normal, not whatever nonsense conspiracy theorists dream up of) that tracks certain status about you including your ID. Then if you test positive for COVID-19 or other diseases, the data is pushed to the chip at next sync. You then simply force people to sync by mandating it for access to common public areas, or when traveling, or wherever else. If you build-in tap-to-pay into the chips too you are already moving people to "sync" themselves as well. A central system maintains global control of the data and we're sorted. At any second you know exactly who's infected and their movement.
But yeah, tech like this is just a dream for now.
Now at least you're starting to see things a bit differently.
