| Written By:

With COVID-19 numbers on the rise, the Times of Israel's Amanda Borschel-Dan spoke with Dr. Tehilla Shwartz Altshuler about the surveillance method Israel uses to track individuals who have tested positive for the coronavirus. It is a sobering conversation, with a troubling look at the technological illiteracy that exists among decision-makers as they grant new, wide-sweeping authority to the Israeli secret service that allows them to track the movements of regular citizens. Despite the difficulties, Dr. Tehilla Shwartz Altshuler ends the podcast on a positive note, even as she warns the listeners that Big Brother is absolutely watching us.
