The meta description of a WebMD article on Contact Tracing refers to it as “[…] the best tool we have to manage this in an ongoing way and allow our economy to open up again.” But what exactly is contact tracing?
According to a senior scholar with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, Crystal Watson, it is “One of the most important steps to reopen the economy safely. When social distancing is relaxed, contact tracing is our best hope for isolating the virus when it appears — and keeping it isolated.”
The experts say the Contact Tracing is “detective work.” But how is this detective work done?
Watson says, “It is used to break chains of transmission, manage epidemics at a low level, to prevent future waves or surges of cases, and to enable us to get back to work in a much safer way.”
In case you haven’t already figured it out, that “low level” of epidemics management is your day to day life — which is to be heavily surveilled.
They describe the tactic as a means to keep close tabs on who has been exposed to those who have not been registered as having an immunity — by which they mean people who have not been vaccinated.
In other words, the intention is to hold off on reopening the economy until not only a proven vaccine can be created, but until contact tracing technology is firmly and thoroughly installed throughout society.
Wikipedia, the first source of information many people encounter when performing an online search, says that contact tracing is “[…] the process of identifying those who may have come into contact with an infected person and subsequent collection of further information about these contacts.”
You might have noticed that so far, everything we have learned about contact tracing is disturbingly vague. They do not describe how it is done. More importantly, they do not describe the extent and the aggressiveness with which “subsequent collection of further information about these contacts” will be collected.
All of the mainstream news sources are calling it the key to stopping COVID-19 … which is already on the decline.
Here’s what they don’t tell you.
Contact Tracing will involve a digital identification that will be attached to your mobile phone. This digital ID will enable your phone to silently and automatically scan other nearby phones. Our digital devices will exchange this ID information with each other. Those who are not registered as having been injected with a mandatory vaccine will be marked as a health risk and will have their activities jealously monitored.
But what if you don’t have a mobile phone? Many people don’t like them or need them. Well, you will be required to obtain one — or you will be issued one. After that, you will need your contact tracing-enabled mobile device to be on your person in order to make purchases, apply for a job, or do business at the DMV.
This is not about your wellbeing. It’s about surveillance, and it is part of the technocratic dream of unelected government officials who crave endless power over citizens.
