The countries that have been successful in stopping Covid-19 to pervent
Sars 2 have used a number of techniques.

Widespread testing and reporting -- e.g. South Korea

Contact tracing in the fat tail

In china they have a QR code to determine the fat tail of different paths
of the disease.  They change color when you might be on a train that
someone else tested positive for.

So there is the big data approach, LOD, SPARQL, quadstores

And the small data approach, social, personal data, small files, blinding,
cryptography, aggregated data

The two can combine to give both a global dasboard (website) and personal
dashboard (web) app

Here's an attempt at an app:


But we are just in the foothills of this disease.  It's going to get a lot
bigger, and come back in waves.  Then it will also mutate to create new
diseases SAR 3, 4, 5 .... N.  Indeed by about the 2030s it will be possible
to synthesize such things on relatively inexpensive hardware

So fighting Covid-YYYY will become the new normal

But I think it's all siloed data.  Government will track this centrally.
Then you hand over your phone an they track your contacts.  Silos all the
way down ...
