(Worthy News) – The government will not move to extend a controversial surveillance program tracking the phones of people who contracted the Omicron coronavirus variant, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz announced Thursday.
The move followed intense public criticism of the decision to enlist the Shin Bet security agency to use invasive technology as part of contact tracing efforts.
Ministers who approved the program Sunday had nonetheless expressed unease about using the tool, requiring that leaders seek Knesset approval to extend the program beyond a Thursday midnight deadline and promising to re-examine the use of the tool every day. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
