Australia’s Minister for Health and Aged Care decided the country’s COVIDSafe application would no longer be used as of Aug. 16. Under the Privacy Act 1988, the government developed a legal framework for citizens to provide personal data through the app to help authorities “prevent or control” the spread of COVID-19. The National COVIDSafe Data Store administrator is now required to no longer collect data through the app and remove the app from stores for download. All personal data will be deleted from the NCDS.
