CONTACT TRACING IS MORE COMPLEX THAN WE THINK AND IS CHALLENGE TO DEMOCRACY

Contact tracing is to find the person who might get hit again. Pretty simple and intuitive. It is essential to break the spread of something and get the society back to normal. But contact tracing contradicts democracy where freedom is challenging. Contact tracing is very subjective and asking people to reveal about their lives. It also challenges human rights and freedom of expression. It is asking, "who else did you sleep with, we found you slept with, has syphilis". This can be pretty challenging. 

This requires collaboration and monitoring from the GOVT which can get tricky and intrusive which challenges democracy. This is a fundamental challenge to public health.
