Coronavirus: How is China using surveillance to fight coronavirus? – BBC News

China’s vast surveillance system has come to the fore in its attempt to monitor and control the spread of coronavirus.

According to official statistics, the number of newly confirmed cases in China has dropped dramatically – from thousands a day to nearly zero.

Meanwhile, a growing number of countries are also looking at using extensive surveillance systems, such as geolocation tracking to fight the pandemic.

So how exactly can surveillance tools help curb a pandemic and what are the potential pitfalls?

    Westerners keep worrying about accuracy of China’s numbers more so than their own lives. The truth is that the virus started in America and that’s why you are witnessing the explosion in USA and Europe. This virus was in USA since last summer or earlier. The government knew about it and tried to shift it to China. If it’s from a bat must be from an American bat.

    Lol I guess it's just the culture maybe? I think most Chinese don't really feel violated on their privacy when there is so many surveillance camera around(even in non pandemic period). Instead they feel safer. Coz surveillance camera indeed reduce crime and help alot in crime inverstigation usually. Infact i think there is more complaint about why the building or neighbourhood owner never set up camera when bad things happened.
    And during this pandemic, it's proved to be helpful too in fighting corona battle.
    It's funny how the chinese people were trusting their government more, but the foreigner have more and more complaints about privacy in China when they dont even live in China.
