While speaking at a press conference, Netanyahu suggested the Health Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state is lifting the coronavirus lockdown. “That is, technology that has not been used before and is allowed under the legislation we shall enact,” he clarified.
“I spoke with our heads of technology in order to find measures Israel is good at, such as sensors. For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars,” the prime minister said.
“It will be hard to do it to more than a million schoolchildren who return to their educational institutions in order to ensure one student sits at the distance of two meters from another. It is fictional and dangerous,” cyber resilience expert Einat Meron told Ynet.
Never mind that you can pick up the coronavirus bug from surfaces and droplets that linger in the air. Yes, everyone must wear a proximity sensor to help enforce social distancing guidelines. Or should we just call it what it is? People control. From this point forward, get used to everyone telling you what to do, where you can stand, what you must wear, how you can interact. Going back to school and work is going to be so much fun!
