“Even faced with a major global health threat, most people in America would oppose intrusive technological measures such as tracking apps to contain the spread of the virus,”  shows a new survey.

“At the same time, Americans are worried that such measures would lead to greater government surveillance in the long term, even after the pandemic has been defeated”

The survey showed that “(~52%) Americans believe that retaining their personal privacy is more important than surrendering it to the authorities in order to fight the spread of the pandemic”

“Almost two thirds (~65%) would disapprove of their government collecting their data or using facial recognition to track their whereabouts.”
