Israel’s Netanyahu Imposes Intrusive Surveillance System That Tracks People Infected With Coronavirus

The Infinite Brief
The Israeli Attorney General has approved the request of the Prime Minister of Israel to track the movement of people infected with the coronavirus utilizing geolocational tracking via mobile phones and other advanced surveillance technologies.

Privacy advocates warn that monitoring and tracking people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — their location, calls, camera and headsets — under the pretext of preventing the transmission and spread of infection, is a violation of people’s right to privacy.

The use of surveillance technologies for monitoring,  tracking and controlling people has long been a practice of Israel under the pretext of security in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.
