1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged). japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/05/0…

1. mi sento ancora una volta in dovere di aiutarvi a capire la questione fondamentale della #sorveglianzaDigitale contro il #COVID, non solo perché sono temi che conosco in modo profondo,ma perché ho preso coscienza della questione #DatiSanitari per una vicenda personale
2. rispetto #FiorenzaSarzanini,ma con tutto il rispetto NON è possibile pensare di imbarcarsi in un programma di #sorveglianza di 60MILIONI di italiani premettendo "vedremo se funzionerà", poi "se qualcuno avrà sbagliato, pagherà". Qui sono in gioco questioni cruciali
3. voglio premettere che,personalmente, NON sono una fanatica della #privacy:come giornalista,ne ho una profonda conoscenza e coscienza,perché ho il dovere professionale ed etico di proteggere le persone che parlano con me: le mie fonti

1. ancora una volta, io sento il dovere di NON stare zitta e dire quello che in una fase di grande "distrazione" (come nooo...) non viene detto sulla "APP" (#sorveglianzaDiMassa) contro #COVID, perché gli sviluppi che vedo sono a dir poco preoccupanti
2. dopo una fase in cui abbiamo temuto il peggio del peggio, ovvero una #sorveglianzaMassa stile #CoreaDelSud con integrazione #datiLocalizzazione,#DatiSanitari,#CarteCredito,#videocamereTelefonini e di tutto di più,ora ci viene proposta una soluzione apparentemente più decente
3. ci viene lasciato intendere che abbiamo scampato il pericolo del modello #CoreaDelSud e che non verrà usata la #geolicalizzazione spinta nelle intenzioni originali di #VittorioColao, ma verrà usato il #bluetooth

Because several people were asking about #Bluetooth, I'll make a thread. But I might ignore further questions, especially regarding over-the-air exploits. #DP3T

• BLE advertisements have a longer range than 2m, but are way more accurate than LTE cell towers.
(1/n)
• BLE advertisement distance measurement accuracy depends a lot on the chips, meaning that they will work well within the Apple ecosystem, but probably not so well on some Androids. (2/n)
• The Singapore app solves this by maintaining active BLE/GATT connections, which provides better measurements, but drains battery power.

• On iOS, the BLE/GATT handler has been extensively tested for security issues and is definitely one of the better ones by now. (3/n)

Excellent piece by @riptari on the devil's in the #privacy-by-design detail of #Bluetooth #ContactTracing. This 'head-to-head' is between DP-PTT & PEPP-PT

Makes you wish some in the #health arena hadn't been so badly abusing the term '#anonymised'...

techcrunch.com/2020/04/06/eu-…
And a heads-up on some of the possible features (or rather, bugs) of @NHSX's #Contact tracing app.

Makes you wish some in the #policing arena hadn't been so ridiculously overstepping their powers...

HINT: for (public) #health interventions to be #successful is dependent on factors other than just whether they #work. The two examples above illustrate (as we have been saying for quite some time now!) that one absolute fundamental is #trust.
