Why are people questioning BC’s Covid response? If we look at BC’s situation with a calm, critical thinking lens, this is what a lot of people are seeing with our provincial response: (THREAD)

First #RedFlagCovidBC : BC doesn't acknowledge a- or pre-symptomatic spread of this virus, which scientists have documented in droves. Instead, BC tells contacts to “self-monitor” themselves for symptoms but keep going to school or work if they are symptom-free. #bced
2/17
Second #RedFlagCovidBC: Experts agree that community spread should be low (measured by test +ivity rates) for schools to operate safely. Yet BC (esp @Fraserhealth) has had consistently high positivity rates in the last several weeks. No change to the #bced plan, even in FH.

Hmm. UK Gov't #digital really is beginning to look like an @AWS carve-up! So much so it's difficult keeping track of the #RevolvingDoors: diginomica.com/liam-maxwells-…

@Azure's still hanging in there, of course & @MattHancock notably blamed @Apple not @Google for his #COVIDapp woes...
...not forgetting the 'leg-up' he gave to #Alexa with his controversial @amazon-drafted NHS deal.

Certainly an appointment worth keeping an eye on, with a process:
instituteforgovernment.org.uk/explainers/per… and legislation: legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2010/25/… that in Constitutional terms has barely bedded in.
Also, as Jerry points out, the salary for #GCDO is not what such roles used to command:



(Maybe @10DowningStreet's looking for rather *less* initiative...)

Hmm.

So, on the one hand we have the Gov't #statisticians, who wish we all had ID cards but who'll carry on using our #PersonalData for administrative ends, while 'exploring' privacy:
gov.uk/government/pub…

And on the other, we have @PalantirTech...

...meanwhile, @CabinetOffice tries recruiting a patsy to front Cummings' data-driven shit-show:


The commercials of which'll be overseen by 'Centres of Expertise' that not only don't understand (or protect) #IP, but which can't even agree on a #value...
...for our #data, despite millions spent on consultants trying get a consistent answer (they liked).

And #ethics? Well, it's quite clear we won't be getting any of those from @cdei:



...which brings us back to the statisticians:

Funderar på om man kan inför en smittspårnings-app i Sverige sådär bakvägen. Dvs man ser bara till att det finns en. Man borde kunna ta källkoden från den tyska, schweiziska eller nån annan. Om det finns en öppen standard för hur de kommunicerar vore det toppen!
Jag har nu installerat danska "smittestop". Det ser ut som att man måste logga in med ett dansk elektroniskt ID "NemID" för att anmäla smitta. Och det har man ju inte som svensk, så det funkar inte. Nu ska jag testa den tyska… Image
I den tyska som heter NINA (om jag har rätt app) kan jag inte hitta var man anmäler smitta. Hittade inget i deras FAQ heller. Image

1/8 Sobre el rastreo digital de contactos con #CoronAppColombia nos han sugerido que expliquemos en cristiano este enredo técnico-político… esperamos que ahora sea más claro. Gracias por sus comentarios. [Hilo]
2/8 #CoronAppColombia quiere hacer rastreo digital de contactos: identificar si un celular estuvo cerca de otro de alguien con #coronavirus, para alertar un posible contagio. Para hacer esto se usa Bluetooth, la pregunta es ¿cómo?
3/8 Primero intentaron con el modelo de @hypelabstech pero lo desecharon porque no funcionó, luego anunciaron que utilizarían la solución de #Google y #Apple, pero de repente están usando la de Singapur: #Bluetrace. Nada de esto lo dicen oficialmente, tocó escarbar.
