Test and Trace programme unlawful, admits UK government

The UK Govt. has admitted its contact tracing programme is unlawful, agreeing that it has been running in breach of data protection laws since it was launched in May. The Govt. is alleged to have not conducted a data privacy impact assessment (DPIA), required to ensure no breaches of patients’ information. The govt. acknowledged this in response to a legal challenge brought by Open Rights Group.

They complain when their is no tracing system, and complain when their is. Do you want to die, and riddles your body and decimates the economy or live and be prosperous.

Of course they violated the privacy laws. With the enormous number of surveillance cameras could it have been anything else?
