Google and Apple to roll out involuntary COVID tracking using bluetooth
[link to www.theverge.com (secure)]

Aparently not enough sheep are voluntarily installing the app and so Google and Apple will release an update that uses bluetooth to create a network of other smartphones you have been in contact with. This will not be voluntary and will force bluetooth to always be on. Think of the drain on the battery...

For those that don't feel like reading the article, here are the relevant quotes:

"Last month, before Google and Apple announced their joint effort to enable COVID-19 exposure notifications, I wrote about the trouble with using Bluetooth-based solutions for contact tracing. Chief among the issues is getting a meaningful number of people to download any app in the first place, public health officials told me. And now that such apps are being released in the United States, we’re seeing just how big a challenge that is.

Here’s Caroline Haskins writing Tuesday in BuzzFeed:

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said on April 22 that the app, Healthy Together, would be an integral part of getting the state back on its feet: “This app will give public health workers information they need to understand and contain the pandemic and help Utahns get back to daily life.”

The state spent $2.75 million to purchase the app and is paying a monthly maintenance fee of $300,000, according to contracts obtained by BuzzFeed News. But as of May 18, just 45,000 of the state’s 3.2 million people had downloaded Healthy Together, according to Twenty.

That’s roughly 1.4 percent adoption, well below the 60 percent or so that public health officials say is necessary to make such exposure notifications effective. And it bodes ill for other states’ efforts to distribute their own apps, particularly in a world where the federal response continues to be confused and even counterproductive.

But a new reason for hope arrived today, in the form of an official release of the Apple/Google exposure notification protocol. The system, which allows official public health apps to use system-level Bluetooth features to help identify potential new cases of COVID-19, is now available as an update to iOS and Android. Three states are working on projects so far, Russell Brandom reported today at The Verge:

Alabama is developing an app in connection with a team from the University of Alabama, while the Medical University of South Carolina is heading up a similar project in collaboration with the state’s health agency.

Most notably, North Dakota is planning to incorporate the system into its Care19 app, which drew significant criticism from users in its early versions."

So we can all see where this is going. When someone tests positive for the fake COVID, officials will now be able to identify all other people this person has been in contact with. All these new people will then be forced to get tested. Those that refuse testing will be lined up outside their homes and shot, just to make sure they don't "infect" anyone else.

OK the "lined up and shot" thing is probably exaggerated. ...then again maybe not.
"AND now, my children, do not say:
'Our father is standing before God,
and is praying for our sins,' for
there is there no helper of any man
who has sinned."

"Blessed is the man who has not
been born or who has been born and
shall not sin before the Lord's face,
that he come not into this place, nor
bring the yoke of this place!"

Re: Google and Apple to roll out involuntary COVID tracking using bluetooth
Interesting note, after the initial rollout there was an adjustment to the terms/instructions from google after the backlash from the initial rollout, google made it so you have to opt-in and can run bluetooth without having the app running.


They still have not provided a way to remove the app, I suspect it may still be secretly tracking and they just made it more subversive.

Trust google? They are in cahoots with the deep state and china too. Obama made them a partner during his 8-years of mischief.

Now we suffer the consequences of his actions.
