Hey all,

Israel is now tracking instrusively via cellphones:
https://www.npr.org/2020/03/19/818327945/israel-begins-tracking-and-texting-those-possibly-exposed-to-the-coronavirus

/"Big Brother is here," wrote Omer, a young father, on Facebook, minutes 
after he received a text message that he'd been close to a virus carrier 
the previous week./

This is the message they send:

    "Hello. According to an epidemiological investigation, you were near
    someone sick with the coronavirus. You must immediately isolate at
    home [14 days] to protect your relatives and the public. ... This
    information will be used only for this purpose and will be erased
    when no longer needed. Sincerely, public health services."

Ehud, can you get us more info to sense the ground truth over there?

I'll be able to say more about our approach, that will leverage VCs and 
maybe DIDs, soon... but we're getting traction with one state and one 
country's MOH. Things moving quickly!

Moses
