Apple and Google are working together in the face of a global pandemic. To track and fight new cases of coronavirus, the companies plan to create a new system for public health apps, eventually built straight into iOS and Android. The system can track the people you have come in contact with via Bluetooth. If one of those people is diagnosed with COVID-19, you'll be alerted and told to self-isolate.

    • Invasion of privacy not required as all the stats are lies and hyped to force vaccinations onto people when not everyone wants them. Hardly anyone knows anyone who has veen severely ill and if they have its so minimal its not enough to lock the world down crashing the economy.

  • they've been tracking my phone I'm sending low energy admission devices through the beacon system into my phone and home devices at high frequencies before the coronavirus this started happening when they were talking about the respiratory issues for the children that were using the hookah pens does anyone remember that respiratory problem how did we have two respiratory problems in the beginning how did it go from hookah pens to coronavirus the coronavirus is a biomedical weapon. It is being biomedically engineered by universities and department of defense internationally this is a fact they've been experimenting these electronic weapons for direct energy for quite some time on the human population that started with the human genome project again take a look at the compilation for 2008 -19 and you'll see the evidence there for human research in non-consent and how they decided to do this until the tire population is infected with nano it is in our Euler that we are connected to neural monitoring from Google these are things that must be discussed in overstand who is using these systems and why are they using them as weapons on citizens

  • obviously that a search engine now imposes strange traces under the guise of the flu hides more than "help to the health authorities". There are many opinions, but the numbers speak for themselves. Since seeing this, and other things, I have never used Chrome again, only Dolphin. DuckDuckgo search engine and gmail account as little as possible. They are pathetic.

  • He helped me get some info such as whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs and even phone conversations that I helpedneeded for proof of his secretive affair, the first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in which he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. He is a fantastic. investigator and a great person; to all loyal partners out there if you have a dishonest partner don't hesitate to contact him via Text or call +1 (267) 957-1144

  • Now, as for contact tracing in our phones etc.: Time to "flash a new OS" to your android phone. We need a LINUX substitute for Android, downloadable to an SD card, and instructions on how to "flash" the LINUX phone OS onto our phone. Linux-capable phones should be listed under each available alternative OS that excludes surveillance. We need a web page with all phone models & all compatible OS, plus LINKS to download the OS, and instructions on how to install the new system to our phones. There seems to be a growing trend away from Windows 10 as well, in favor of Linux.

  • Honestly, I’ve been thinking that they figured out that making these devices they could one day make everything go virtual. Like, they would get rid of public schools, stores, make working at home a thing. They’d get rid of real currency and we would just have apps or our cards to make transactions and make online shopping the only way to shop. I think we’ll go virtual in the near future but I hope we don’t because that would make people miserable and weird. But, what do y’all think? I’d like really like to know. One more thing, how did they get the app to get it to tell if you’re exposed to COVID that’s kinda freaky. If they can do that I wonder what else they could do pretty scary guys.
