Digital technologies are playing a role in enhancing Covid-19 disease surveillance, coordinating response mechanisms, and promoting public awareness. However, COVID-19 Digital Response measures could harm constituent digital rights, particularly:

  • The right to privacy and personal data protection
  • Freedom of expression and online association

Indeed, since the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, misinformation, censorship and surveillance efforts are expanding around the world. We need proactive and sustained digital rights advocacy.
