A Chinese city plans to monitor its citizens and rank them by healthiness with an app, making its emergency COVID-19 surveillance regime permanent

1 month ago   |   By Business Insider

A Chinese city is proposing a permanent health tracking app that gives people a daily score based on their habits like drinking, sleeping, and walking.

Privacy advocates warn that new tracking systems introduced during the coronavirus pandemic could become permanent or erode privacy rules around the world.
