Location-tracking wristbands required on all incoming travelers to Hong Kong – Naked Security


Welcome to Hong Kong, traveler, and to the mandatory, Disney MagicBand-esque tracking wristband we’re about to slap onto your potentially infectious arm.

The city-state had already been requiring arrivals from mainland China to self-isolate at home for 14 days. But as the area undergoes a COVID-19 resurgence, mostly brought in by travelers coming from European, US and Asian countries, it’s now enforcing the quarantine on all incoming travelers, with the wristbands helping to ensure that they adhere to movement restrictions.

The government announced on Monday that starting at midnight on Thursday (19 March), it was planning to put all arriving passengers under a two-week quarantine and medical surveillance.

On Wednesday evening, Government Chief Information Officer Victor Lam told reporters at the airport that the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data had been consulted about the technology and had assured everybody that it won’t threaten people’s privacy.

CIO Lam:

The app will not capture, directly, the location. It will only capture the changes in location, especially the telecommunication signals around the confinee, to ensure that he’s staying at home.

Hong Kong confirmed 16 new cases of coronavirus on Thursday, bringing the city’s total to 208, according to the South China Morning Post. The new cases – 11 men and five women, aged 19 to 51 – had traveled to Europe, Britain and/or Canada. Hong Kong’s chief executive, Carrie Lam, said that of the 57 new cases Hong Kong recorded in the past two weeks, 50 were travelers from overseas.
