The Australian government’s COVIDSafe COVID-19 contact tracing app is out there, the while Prime Minister Scott Morrison is trying very hard to persuade us to download and use it, I for one still have quite a few questions.

This morning I wrote an article for ZDNet titled Australia’s COVIDSafe contact tracing story is full of holes and we should worry. It generated quite a bit of interest.

So even though I’ve done several radio spots already, including this one and more recently this one, once more I was on ABC Adelaide with Jules Schiller this afternoon.

And once more we were joined by Dr John Coyne from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI).
