Location data likely to play limited role in fighting coronavirus

As COVID-19 worsens, though, expect to see a greater willingness to trade privacy for effective health surveillance, just as 9/11 led to a tightening of security around airports and other public spaces.

„A situation like the pandemic creates a fundamental shift in how people react to technology. This is the direction we are going to be moving in.“

— Labhesh Patel, chief technology officer at Jumio, an ID verification company

The bottom line: We’ve already given up so much in the fight against COVID-19. Some elements of personal privacy may be the next to go — and don’t expect the surveillance to end when the pandemic does.

Axios declines to comment on anonymous poll cited by President Trump

(16.07.2019)

The piece reports that the poll was taken in May and that it “included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.” An important constituency, in other words.

Absent, however, is any indication of who did the poll, who commissioned it, how it was conducted, what the questions were, what its other results were and so on.

unfucking real. House Democrats paid for AND leaked to Axios a poll of 1000 white people without a college education to find a poll that says AOC, Ilhan, Tlaib et al are bad. What a fucking joke leadership is
