covd days : 12 April Easter Sunday

Peace be with you.

I often let my mind wander to anywhere it wants. Today my thought was after this pandemic, things has to be better. We should have store of the things we lacked like PPEs for the health workers, medical grade reusable face masks for the general public. And maybe we should manufacture them so that we are not dependent on their imports.

The IATF adopts the policy of mandatory public disclosure of personal information relating to positive COVID-19 cases to enhance the contact tracing efforts of the government.” The Data Privacy Act allow the government to disclose sensitive personal data on cases of national security. In this case, data needed for contact tracing of of people who tested positive for covid-19. This does not apply to Persons Under Investigation (PUIs) or Persons Under Monitoring (PUMs). My opinion as a data privacy officer is that the personal data to be released should only be the name of the patient, the patient’s home address and the patient’s whereabouts for that past 14 days from the date the patient was tested as the name of the person or persons the patient was in close contact with during those 14 days.

And I just read some news that Japan drops China over this pandemic. I am not surprised. The US is putting some heavy thought into taking out their manufacturing from China as well.

And then there’s this news about China-backed hackers attacking linux servers. Hmmm maybe it’s time to hack them back.

I restarted my exercises. The first should always be easy and increasing the difficulty as I progress through the week. I’ll see where I am by Friday. The target is just to get fit.
