California Gov. Gavin Newsom says tech companies are key to lifting coronavirus restrictions - CNBC

Tech companies will be key to supporting California’s growing “army” of coronavirus contact tracers and ultimately reopening the state, Gov. Gavin Newsom told CNBC on Friday.

“We’re so pleased with the work Mark Zuckerberg has been doing to support the open access of appropriate data in an anonymized way, in a non-individual or personalized way, including Apple and Google and others,” he said on CNBC’s “Fast Money.” “That is really going to help us with the technology platforms to help us supplement or support the efforts of the individual tracers, an army that we’re all starting to build and train...”

Experts have started to call on the private sector to help follow the spread of coronavirus using so-called “syndromic surveillance,” a technique that can be used to track pandemics.

Tech companies are particularly well-positioned to do it, since most people in the U.S. own a phone where apps can be installed

And your Android and iOS are spyware. 

Governor Newsom has rejected the calls by protesters. Instead of the people, Mark Zuckerberg, Google, and Apple will be determining the reopening of California.
