    If only there was a blockchain that provides a solution to this problem... and best of all, you're rewarded for the data whilst privacy is assured through the decentralised network.

    Could name it, but not until I buy more of it...

    Any tech reliant on mobile phones is likely to exclude those vulnerable people who most need to know.

    Typical of this day and age that everyone thinks everything can be solved by an app.
    Nothing is going to cover every possible scenario. However a mobile phone app to help contact tracing can easily be part of the puzzle and get you a significant amount of useful data. You then use other data sources as well to get the full picture

    FFS, people in this country are so paranoid they want to live under a police state. Have you guys not been watching the police recently, and that's with only a little extra power - we do not want to give these muppets any more power.

    No, I think it's just the one or two pillocks around here advocating for a police state and an end to civil liberties. Well that's what was being spouted before I put them on my ignore list and now only catch sight of their moronic drivel when someone quotes them.
