According to state media, the platform can accurately pinpoint a passenger’s location on a flight or a train to within three rows of a confirmed or suspected virus carrier.

Health code that restricts movements:   Apart from we are using applications for messaging such as WeChat and payment platforms have released color based QR to label how “safe” a person is. Using a composite of voluntarily surrendered personal data and city municipal data, a three-color code is generated: green for “safe”, yellow requiring a seven-day quarantine and red for a 14-day quarantine. The program appears to send a user’s location and identifying code number to a server connected to the police. This could allow the authorities to track people’s movements over time.

In General Mobile tracking/mass surveillance: The Chinese government is gathering people’s smartphone location data, body temperatures, travel history, and other details in a centralized database, in which the data is being analyzed using Big Data and Machine Learning.

Using this data, the government can find out the number of people with whom an infected person was in close contact and order them to self-isolate themselves. For instance, if in the past ten days, an infected person bought biscuits from a grocery store using WeChat money or AliPay, the cashier at the store who was in contact with him, will be ordered to quarantine himself.

Autonomous vehicles: These vehicles less the risk of people to people contact. It proved to be of great utility in delivering essential goods like medicines and food items. Apollo, which is Baidu’s autonomous vehicle platform, has joined hands with self-driving startup Neolix to deliver supplies and food to a big hospital in Beijing. Baidu Apollo has also made its micro-car kits and autonomous driving Cloud services available for free to companies fighting the virus.
