Daily Dashboard | COVID-19 contact-tracing updates around the world Related reading: Notes from the IAPP Europe Managing Director, 18 Sept. 2020




  • Following privacy concerns, Australian businesses are urged to be careful about how they collect and store people’s names and phone numbers for contact-tracing purposes, The Guardian reports.
  • Financial Times reports the U.K. government announced “ringfenced” teams of contact-tracers will work with local authorities starting Aug. 24, as the effectiveness of the national “test and trace” strategy in reaching those who test positive for COVID-19 is being questioned.
  • The Philippines’ National Privacy Commission said the country’s Data Privacy Act does not impede contact-tracing efforts by local governments as it allows for guidelines set by the Department of Health.

Editor’s note: The IAPP Resource Center compiled global privacy updates on its COVID-19 Guidance and Resources page.
