American Stasi: California Building 10,000 Person Army Of Professional Snitches

California will lead the nation in creating an army of Big-Brother snitches to rat out personal health statuses. Hiring will be no problem since unemployment is rampant among many groups, including the homeless and illegal immigrants. What could go wrong?

California’s plans to build an army of 10,000 people that can trace the trail of the coronavirus exposure could serve as a template for the nation and create a whole new sector of public health workers.

San Francisco this week is deploying its first group of about 50 volunteer contact tracers, many with no health care background — such as city librarians, attorneys and investigators. Officials elsewhere are watching the approach developed by University of California, San Francisco researchers with the hopes that they can scale it up quickly with workers from nonhealth sectors to meet the needs this unprecedented pandemic.

Contract tracing involves tracking down the individuals and locations that an infected person may have exposed before being diagnosed with Covid-19. It is considered an essential tool to help states contain the virus once they lift stay-at-home orders, especially since many infected people can be asymptomatic carriers of the disease and expose others without knowing it.

“This is our Dunkirk moment for people to play their part in this work, and there’s also the understanding that we’re going to need a new vision of public health if we’re going to be able to address this,” said Mike Reid, a UCSF infectious disease specialist leading the effort, referring to the World War II battle in which hundreds of private civilian boats aided in the successful evacuation effort of Allied troops.

California is among the few states considered to be ahead of the curve in developing their tracing programs. But no other state has to do it for nearly 40 million people.

The state initially used contact tracing as a containment strategy early in the pandemic before cases skyrocketed, back when there was hope that...

  1. Will they double as vote harvesters?

    1. Sorry, you have it backwards. They will be vote harvesters doubling as snitches. Bet that most, if not all snitches will be democrat party faithful.

  2. The problem (or the feature depending on where you are looking from) with comparing the present plans to that of Dunkirk is that Dunkirk was the result of a colossal failure and those who were on the beaches were about to surrender. I don't think that Americans are about to surrender here although I wonder if we haven't already done so.
