How Israel is fighting the coronavirus

Episode 309 of the Cyberlaw Podcast

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

In this bonus episode, we explore Israel's technology- and surveillance-heavy approach to the COVID-19 pandemic. In it, Matthew Waxman and I talk to Yuval Shany, a noted Israeli human rights expert and professor at Hebrew University. We cover the particularly fraught political crisis that the virus exacerbated, the use of Israel's counterterrorism tools to trace contacts of infected individuals, and the significance of locational privacy in the face of a deadly contagion.

Our thanks to both Nachum Braverman of Academic Exchange and Ben Wittes of Lawfare for making the interview possible.

  1. It is good to see that the world is not giving up against this pandemic and are willing to fight with everything they have. Israel is setting an example for every country. I would like to write an essay on this and was looking to take help from a writing service when my friend suggested checking website. I would like to ask if anyone here has used their services before and where could I find some of their reviews?

  2. Every country has taken its own approach to dealing with the novel coronavirus, from travel and movement restrictions to economic stimulus packages. In the global race for medical supplies and a coronavirus cure, the Israeli government is mobilizing its spies, soldiers and secretive scientists.To know more on how Israel and other countries fight against the pandemic, check this one out:
