US may use location data from Google to track coronavirus

As the coronavirus continues to spread, countries are using high-tech strategies to stop the virus from growing. The US is considering the idea of using smartphone location data from FB & Google to check how & where the coronavirus spreads. On the same line, Israel has approved a emergency regulation that would allow govt to monitor & track cellphone location data of known coronavirus patients.
