Covid-19 tracking apps, or: how to deal with a pandemic most unsuccessfully

Abstract

Faced with a rapid, partially invisible pandemic, a majority of countries have so far chosen emergency measures based on territorial zoning, which does not discriminate between the sick and the healthy. Now, digital contact tracing is being presented to us as the ideal way to differentiate between these two groups of people. In reality, it instead adds another political problem, that of an enlarged surveillance apparatus, without solving the underlying one: the lack of an effective public health strategy.
