In this episode of ‘who in the f**k wants to live on this planet”, we now have tidal waves of bullshit coming at us that rival the Red Sea’s waters pounding upon the Egyptians once Moses raised his arms to close the sea upon them.
Sadly, the modern era of sub-mediocrity has no Moses type guy with such powers. Instead, the gods of shitf**kery have overtaken the heavens and instead of dropping skittles and gummy bears from the skies, they slay the unwashed with BS that toddlers could see and discern for what it is…bullshit!
Uber Announces Participating in Contact Tracing – They Will Turn You in to Health Authorities – via healthimpactnews.com
Today, FiercePharma is reporting that Uber is now participating with health authorities to help with contact tracing. So if you thought that you could avoid being arrested in your own home by simply refusing to get a COVID test from among the more than 100 fast-tracked inaccurate COVID tests currently on the market, think again.
Uber is providing their contact tracing services for free, not to you their customers, but to local health authorities. That means every time you use the popular ride-share service, they can track you to see if you have been in contact with any COVID positive people, including, apparently, previous riders in their drivers’ cars which you would not even know about, and then turn your information into the health authorities.
But it’s not just traveling and motoring about that has these dickheads attention, it’s food and even your neighbors who can alert the authorities to your ‘nefarious’ activities:
Ridesharing giant Uber has rolled out a service to give public health officials quick access to user data to track coronavirus cases, Reuters reported Monday.
The contact tracing service will be provided for free, and is reportedly being introduced to public health officials in all countries where Uber operates, according to Reuters. Company officials told Reuters information of either a driver or passenger can be accessed in a few hours.
The service provides health departments with data about who used Uber’s services and when and allows health agencies to urge affected drivers and users to quarantine, company officials told reporters.
Uber has a protocol in place that it can disclose user information to public health agencies in an emergency involving danger of death or serious physical injury.
Since COVID-19 can be transmitted through close proximity to affected individuals, public health officials have identified contact tracing as a valuable tool to help contain its spread. (Source.)
This apparently applies to food delivery apps as well.
As cities around the U.S. have begun requiring restaurants to take down diners’ contact information for contact tracing, tech-engabled restaurant reservation apps such as Tock have reportedly also been tapped to help with contact tracing.
Ride-hailing data could play an important role in that effort, health officials and experts said, because it identifies a larger set of people outside the direct social circle of an infected individual, according to the Reuters article.
In January, Uber executives flew to Los Angeles to meet with the local health department and CDC officials to discuss how Uber’s data could best be used, Uber’s chief of global law enforcement Mike Sullivan told Reuters. Since the onset of the pandemic in the U.S., Uber has received approximately 560 coronavirus-related requests from public health officials across 29 countries, most of which were processed by the company within two hours, company officials told Reuters.
If you don’t want to risk a knock at your door by health authorities and law enforcement forcing you to get a COVID test, the best option you have right now is to NOT carry around a cell phone, or if you do, keep it shut off or on “airplane mode.”
Start using cash for transactions (while you still can) instead of credit cards, as a record of a credit card purchase at a certain time in a certain location, could also identify you as being in contact with the COVID positive individual.
Welcome to the “new normal.” Civil liberties are gone, and things like HIPAA privacy laws no longer apply in this perpetual state of emergency over THE VIRUS. – via healthimpactnews.com
The shitf**kery is never-ending from these shysters
In this State (of shit) that this shitposting writer lives in, they’ve come up with cute and insipid ways of nudging you to tattling upon your neighbors.
Protect Our Neighbors: – via covid19.colorado.gov
Everyone was required to stay at home except for grocery shopping, exercise and necessary activities. Only critical businesses were open.
While we are all still safer at home, we are also able to practice greater social distancing in our great outdoors than in confined indoor spaces.
Local public health agencies have the ability to contain surges in cases and outbreaks through testing, case investigation, contact tracing, isolation, quarantine, site-specific closures, and the enforcement of public health orders.
And if you don’t find this bullshit disturbing…check your pulse.
There is a forgotten method of dealing with these psychopath’s ‘guidances and rules’, and as a public service, we provide that method that demonstrates how to tell any and all, with their rules and mandates (not laws), to fuck off!
“I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active – not more happy – nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.” ―
Tonight’s musical offering:
We look to magical times from just a few months ago, that these government a-holes have banned.
And all is good, right?…because we’re all in this together – the annihilation of us all.
