Covid App

Test
Nov 26, 2020 | 14:50 1 Just learned of older couple with covid. Probably from grandkids. Should all school kids with phones have the app ? If grand parents have app it might help. Useful if kids don't have symptoms. Reply With Quote
Blaithin's Avatar Nov 26, 2020 | 14:58 2 This is a very hypothetical question. Does everybody have a cell phone? Does everybody have smart phones?

Should they. Should all school age children have them? Seems a bit ridiculous to give an elementary child a phone so they can have an app...

Especially considering many people are not using the app, and in some places the app is not in use or other apps are...

Really this entire thread could just be considered phishing to get the debate flaming about whether we should be traced by our phones or not. Personal responsibility could go much farther than a tracing app, especially when contacts are family members.

Have a chicken.

    Nice conjecture. You are full on foaming at the mouth now. You must be the super spreader they warn us about. Trudeau and Biden, your heroes, now recommend clear plastic bags over the head sealed tight at the neck as being better alternative to the face diapers. Try it. Or change your lifestyle, assuming you are under 80 years old, and get healthy and don’t worry about catching the flu and getting sniffles. Reply With Quote

    Nov 26, 2020 | 15:25 5 The app does not track you. Latest studies show kids carry and spread virus just like adults. They just don't express symptoms. Reply With Quote

    So then what's it even going to do?

    The apps rely on someone with the app testing positive. Then it'll tell any other apps that came within 6 feet, or whatever the distance is, that they were close to a positive case. Does it tell people that were close to the people that were close to the positive?

    If the kids don't have symptoms and aren't tested and known to be positive, then their app isn't going to let anyone else's app know anything. The kids would have to be tested positive.

    If the kids came in contact with a positive case then their app would let them know they were exposed but really, by then they're probably going to have been at Granny and Gramp's place anyway if they don't feel sick.

    I've found there's about a week long delay in the process. Someone you know finds out someone they know is positive. The person you know did not find out in time so they exposed others but they can then let people they were around know to start to limit it. It needs to go at least 3 to 4 people out from original exposure to get ahead of it. Does the app do that? I understood that it only contacts contacts of positives. Reply With Quote
    Nov 26, 2020 | 16:04 8 Then they are able to phone you about 8 days after being close to someone who isn't sick but had a positive test and you go into manditory isolation even if you aren't at all sick.
    No thank you. Reply With Quote

  • Nov 26, 2020 | 17:25 9 Apps used here not sure why but no issues or anger people just use it fir greater good.

    No conspiracy stuff. Really of little consequence tome we are in a crap service area so unsure how well it works.

    Really its not even a talking point. Reply With Quote
    Nov 27, 2020 | 07:55 10 I used to have the app then last week JT came on and talked specifically that “you need to download the app” with his typical Shakespearian drama and condescending voice. It was too much for me and just like that I deleted it. Just killed it. Et tu Brute? Reply With Quote

    How would one test to see if it works if you never knew anyone with positive Covid or never even knew anyone who knew anyone with it? Reply With Quote

    Outbreakbat a pizza bar here two weeks ago. Th8nk almost 3000 people notified within 24 hours to get tested.

    Meaning some one traced to pizza bar then went to shop b people with app that visted shop b were notified etc etc.

    If ya dont come into tracing area because if outbreak your never notfied.

    If one feels his civil liberties are arvrisk justvdelete the app not compulsory

    Like ive said a million times no big issue or outcry

    With fear of sound8ng like a arrogant arsehole different mindset here.

    In it together for greater good. Regardless of view point of civid Reply With Quote

    And whose illness did I mock? I have no desire to fit in anywhere. I am my own man, with my own thoughts and I believe in the freedom to share those thoughts.

    I repeat. Whose illness did I mock? Reply With Quote
    Nov 27, 2020 | 16:45 25 Most people, at least with iPhones have already had an COVID app pushed onto there phone with out their knowledge or permission.

    I made sure that mine is turned off. I am not Anti masker or denier but no damn way I am turning something on that I wasn’t asked about.

    Have a look , it’s there .

    Nov 27, 2020 | 22:34 27 So....it doesn't track you, but it can tell you if you were in a place where someone else was that tested positive for covid?....

    Just think about that for a while. Reply With Quote
