Bad enough listening to that ghastly cough which is a part of a caller tune here in India, South Korea has gone one step further by sending text messages informing the public about the travel history of those affected. Here is a typical text message:
“A woman in her 60s has just tested positive,” reads a typical text, “Click on the link for the places she visited before she was hospitalised,”
Such messages are not only embarrassing they could put those concerned in trouble. Collecting information helps the authorities to know who all would be affected but publicising it may not quite be ethical.
Would you consider this approach, ethical?
