Thai Government insists Thai Chana Covid19 tracing platform doesn’t access users personal data

BANGKOK(NNT) – The government’s Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) insists that the Thai Chana (Victory) platform does not access users’ personal data or compile or track their shopping habits.

Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin, the spokesman of the CCSA, said this week that the Thai Chana platform is intended to help limit the spread of COVID-19. The system does not access people’s private information. The registered data will only be used to help contain the disease.

Furthermore, the information will remain in the database for only 60 days before being deleted. If no infection is reported, members of the public do not have to be concerned because the government will protect their personal information and will not use it for any other purpose.

Dr. Taweesin also said people would not be forced to hospitals or pulled out of their homes and forced into state quarantines if they were flagged somewhere that a case was found, another concern on social media. They would be offered a Covid19 test for free at a local medical center. If they tested negative they would continue on their way.

With several restrictions having been eased, all businesses and activities categorized in the white and green groups of the Thai Chana platform are now eligible to submit an application.
