Contact tracing: attention, in Italy only Immuni

Contact tracing: attention, in Italy only Immuni
The only contact tracing application that Italian citizens can and must refer to in order to stem the circulation of COVID-19 is Immune. Apparently there is a need to reiterate this, as highlighted yesterday by the social profiles of the project that take up a note attributed to the Privacy Guarantor.

Privacy Guarantor: Immuni is the only contact tracing app

It may seem paradoxical, but one of the reasons that have so far pushed many not to download the app, the protection of privacy, risks being compromised by the use of alternative software which, thanks to the prolongation of the health crisis, have started to circulate. It matters little whether municipalities, regions, health facilities or other types of realities produced them.

The #Garante warns about illegitimate #ContactTracing apps. The # COVID19 emergency must not be an excuse to damage the #privacy of citizens. The only app entitled to operate in this context is #Immuni, which has its basis in a national law.

We do not have at the time of the official data, more up to date. To increase the dissemination is and will be necessary to continue to provide the utility across all channels available, institutional and non-institutional. He is doing it, among others, the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism precisely in the weeks that intensify the movements of those who move for a well-earned vacation.
