    The end of a forced imprisonment? So everyone can be a prisoner with their lives on parole walking around with their electronic tags attached to them like they do to prisoners with their electronic anklets. Wonderful idea. They should develop an app to get rid of politicians.

    Can we just have a public vote? Would the nation rather face the risk of virus? or risk the loss of God given freedoms and poverty? If not. Then where is democracy? This is more like demon mockery. Why havent the public got a voice on the issue?

    I live on the IOW and tried repeatedly to download the NHS tracking app onto my phone. Continual error messages and it seems the app will only work on phones less than a year old?

    Bearing in mind how important this is I was able to get a brand new Samsung A51 running Android 10. After 4 or 5 attempts was able to download the app, but with it installed battery life is less than an hour!

    Tried to get help with this but not been possible. Anyone else having the same problems?

    This is an excerpt from today's report by the Korean media.

    The horrific deaths and human rights violations of Indonesian sailors on Chinese fishing boats. Last March 30, the West Pacific Ocean.

    On the deck of a Chinese ship, a tube wrapped in red cloth was placed.

    It was a 24-year-old Indonesian sailor, Ari.

    He died on a ship after fishing in a Chinese fishing boat for over a year.

    Chinese sailors around the coffin perform simple funerals by waving burnt incense and sprinkling alcohol.

    [Chinese sailor] "Anyone else to do the memorial service? No? No?"

    Then, he picks up the tube and throws it into the sea.

    Ari was buried in the sea where the depth was unknown.

    Before Ari's death, 19-year-old alpata and 24-year-old Seffrey were killed and all were buried the day they died.

    The vows of some of the dead sailors were to be cremated and sent home when they died.

    My colleagues never imagined that the body would be dumped in the sea.

    [Indonesian sailor A] "I knew you were getting off the ground and cremating the body."

    Fellow sailors testified that the environment on the ship was poor and that labor exploitation continued, and that the dead sailors suffered from the disease for nearly a month and complained of pain.

    [Indonesian sailor B] "My dead colleagues first felt paralysis in their legs and began to swell. My body was swollen, and it was getting harder to breathe."

    The majority of Chinese sailors drank bottled water from land, but Indonesian sailors drank seawater, which made them sick.

    [Indonesian sailor B] "At first, I didn't drink the seawater I skipped. I was dizzy. And later, phlegm began to come out of my throat."

    In addition, they suffered from 18 hours of hard labor a day.

    [Indonesian sailor A] "There were times when I stood up and worked for 30 hours in a row, and I couldn't sit down and rest except when the rice was served every six hours."

    But they couldn't get out of a slave environment.

    "There's some typical exploitation and devices that bind to the sea. The confiscation of your passport. And then the extraordinarily high transmission costs, including the breakaway deposit, because of this…"

    Five of the crew were paid only $120 for 13 months at sea.

    That's nine dollars in salary.

    This Chinese deep-sea fishing boat was a tuna fishing boat.

    But we picked up sharks from time to time, and we cut out shark fins, so we kept them separate.

    They say they usually catch more than 20 sharks a day. He said he saw 16 boxes of shark fins. One box weighs 45kg, then about 800kg…"

    Environmental groups believe that even if there was a death, they would not return to land and continue fishing because they were afraid of being caught illegally fishing.

    Because there are so many shark fins in the ship, it's presumed that they didn't go into the harbor because they were scared because they were under tremendous sanctions when they were searched.

    China illegally fishing tuna off the Pacific coast, catching sharks, cutting fins and dumping sharks into the sea.

    In addition to the spread of the coronavirus worldwide, China illegally fishing, Indonesian sailors' exploitation of human rights, delayed payment of wages, human trafficking, and illegal labor, made the thirsty sailors drink sea water instead of water, and died of dehydration and abandoned them in the Pacific Ocean.

    Should I just sit by and watch China? Strong sanctions are needed, and not only are Chinese ethnic groups in the U.S. mainland or Europe mired in communist ideas, but China detected the corona danger early on, sending masks, disinfectants, alcohol, powdered milk and toilet paper to mainland China, and China deliberately blocked exports of masks, respirators and medical supplies.

    The U.S. and European governments must decide whether they will stand by China's atrocities or need strong sanctions. The Chinese race is so controversial that it causes economic and social losses by robbing intellectual property rights or engaging in various crimes, regardless of the U.S., Europe, or Japan.

    Korea has ratified an international protocol to prevent human trafficking such as forced labor and sexual exploitation, so it can be investigated immediately, but it has notified us that it cannot because Chinese ships are out in international waters. Korea is known as a heavily trade-dependent country and an excessive pro-China country, and has a history of economic sanctions and retaliation from China due to past or recent or current policies with the U.S., so it has frequently shown or attached gestures. It is said to have encouraged medical staff and the people to sacrifice themselves for the sake of current and future economic returns. In order to save the image of a quarantine country, we have to make a friendly China move, distance ourselves from the U.S., and open the door rather than lock it up for excessive sacrifice, so that quarantine is a severe sacrifice.

    Remember somewhere in the UK a 13yro boy hasn't discovered he's different yet, Facebook already knows he's Gay!

    Yep, Facebook knew before he did?

    If your here to find answers for privacy concerns let me assure you this application respect's your privacy, take it from a mobile software development and security pen tester on the Android platform.


    Apple, Google, Smart devices for fitness, your network provider are all giving a lot more data to the government than the developer of this application could ever dream of doing.

    You probably have multiple social media applications on your device that have more permissions and access to hardware and other applications and file systems than a specifically crafted malware created by black hat hackers.

    I could build a reverse TCP exploit and still have half the capability in terms of personal data mining than Facebook.

    1) create a problem,
    2) generate a solution whereby under normal conditions it wouldn’t be tolerated,
    3) exploit and increase conditions under solution that was originally generated..

    how long does the record of being close last? a day? a week? that could mean 1000’s of records per phone Where is this information stored?
    What happens if a person is a carrier and is not aware they are infected? can this app use the info to identify them from the contacts they infected?

    I will speak as a person living in Germany.
    There are many people who call tracking South Koreans' location a violation of human rights, but in fact, the name and residence of the infected person are unknown, and even if the company is closed, who is infected?
    However, it was an opportunity for South Koreans to see the distorted reports of human rights violations by the British BBC and confirm that it is a country with unreliable broadcasting standards that lack accuracy in the media. 🙁

    "Dr. Fauci (…) has known for 15 years that chloroquine and it’s even milder derivative hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) will not only treat a current case of coronavirus (“therapeutic”) but prevent future cases (“prophylactic”). So HCQ functions as both a cure and a vaccine. In other words, it’s a wonder drug for coronavirus."

    What’s the big deal? We’ve been using a similar app in Australia for the last two weeks. So far about 4 million Aussies have downloaded the app. That’s roughly 20% of the population. Anything that can get us back to near normal is great in my books. The selling point should be….this app will help us get back to normal. Trying to sell it on the idea that it will help safeguard others won’t work….people are too self centered for that to work.
