Contact tracing is the sugar-coated term for their increased surveillance. Contact tracking is a more accurate term.
If the Corona Virus scare that is currently plaguing us is a manufactured crisis, like this website says it is, then one of the main objectives of this is to increase surveillance. Just like the true aim of 5G is to bring total surveillance to the world, the true aim of contact tracing is not to track those who might be infected, it is just to track people in general. This virus scare is deceiving us into giving up our liberties in order to achieve security from the threat of the virus, because the agenda driving media is creating fear and panic in people to the extent that they are not thinking rationally.
Summary: In this article NPR lays the ground for how slow and painstaking traditional contact tracing is. It involves a group of people spending hours to track down those who cam in contact with infected people. Ugh, how painstaking. Meanwhile people are dying! Wouldn’t it be great if we all turned our phones into automatic tracking devices and turned on that bluetooth to inundate our bodies with even more wireless radiation! Well the folks at NPR agree. The following article explains.
