Download the app to be Covid aware
27th April 2020
Lyn and I have both downloaded the COVIDSafe app. We were amongst the first 1 million who did because we believe it is for the greater good and will be a significant step in enabling us all to get back to work, back to school, back to something resembling what our lives were just a couple of months ago.
I have heard the concerns being raised that this app will let the government or others track your movements and see who you are meeting with.
Of course, there is no evidence of that and it is completely at odds with the assurances of the Prime Minister and Health Minister.
I understand healthy scepticism, but on this, I’m personally willing to set aside any minor doubt I have about my privacy for what seems to be a very large whole-of-community benefit.
