Coronavirus has given the CCP a perfect pretext for collecting personal information and monitoring the movement of citizens. They can officially demand the citizens to register their personal information and whereabouts. As revealed by an official document from Guizhou province (an underdeveloped province in the south of China), the local government requires everyone living in Guiyang to register his/her personal information, including address, on a platform especially “developed for epidemic prevention and control”. To enter a community, people have to scan a QR code that identifies whether they are the residents of the community or not.
Actually, not just Guiyang, many other cities have developed similar apps for collecting similar or even more detailed personal information about the citizens, all under the pretext of epidemic control. While fed into the big data analysis system, such data will definitely give a more faithful and high-resolution image of the whereabouts of the citizens. The document says “the data are stored in the public security bureau and “users do not need to worry about the safety and confidentiality of the data”. Are you worried?
Translation of the above notice:
Guiyang Municipal Information Collection Platform for Epidemic Prevention and Control is a work platform was developed by the Social Prevention and Control Team of Guiyang Municipal Leading Group for Prevention and Control of the Noval Coronavirus-infected Pneumonia in response to the epidemic with the data stored in Guiyang Public Security Bureau so users do not need to worry about the safety and confidentiality of the data.
The platform to be accessed via the QR code mainly serves to register personal information and identify whether a person is a resident of a community through his/her registered address.
Every citizen is requested to faithfully fill in his/her information with one mobile phone registered for one user only, and the user can access the platform by scanning the QR code. Where the registered information needs to be changed, the change should be done at the local police station.
Where community residents, such as the elderly, children, etc., can not use the QR code for the time being, the personnel on duty should strictly register their information as required to ensure proper implementation of the epidemic prevention and control measures.
Should the user has any problem with, or suggestion, opinion or complaint about the platform, please call the public service hotline 12345.
