Help The Correspondent investigate corona surveillance

States and private companies are turning to surveillance technologies in the wake of the novel corona virus. In China, you can now see the body temperature of someone delivering you food. UK, Spain and Portugal have been using drones to keep track of people. Meanwhile, in Poland and India - citizens are expected to send selfies to prove that they are following quarantine rules.

Last week, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) called for a pan-European app for tracking the spread of the virus.

If this topic interests you, study this list of projects using personal data to combat corona and then join The Correspondent in their attempt to keep track of the watchers.
