In an article published in “Revista de Gestão dos País de Língua Portuguesa,” researchers from FGV EAESP presented a case study on data collection and treatment strategies, including geolocation and health services, in both regions. The study focused on technological solutions created at the beginning of the pandemic, in 2020.
The paper’s authors – Mariana Leite Fernandes da Silva, Marco Antonio Carvalho Teixeira and Eduardo de Rezende Francisco – highlight greater concern with transparency in the European Union. German app “Corona-Datenspende” requires direct consent from users regarding the processing of personal data, unlike Coronavirus – SUS, in which consent is presumed by use of the app. The article highlights the challenge of balancing the collective right to health and the individual right to data protection, as one of these will be prioritized in each context.
