Default Re: H.R. 6666: COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act

The idea to collect 'contact' information, is vague at best, considering someone who is carrying COVID 19 and may not know it, may literally walk by someone and not know who it is.

For this idea that the government could backtrace any contacts, would involve what? Mass security cameras over the entire country, fed into one huge databank, that could identify a person by facial recognition, therefore tracking every single person in this country?

Do you even have one glimmer of a hint what would not only be involved to do this, but that every single right of a citizen would be wiped out? No expectation of privacy anywhere, even in your own home. Being tracked by cameras. Strangers, family members, neighbors, possibly reporting on you for possible breaches of 'contact'.

What could possibly go wrong?
I believe that the people that are for using this, also believe it will only be used to track COVID.
