Surveillance is a tool for identifying emerging disease trends as well as mitigating the spread of COVID-19. The desire to link national surveillance systems to one single database has been sought for reporting accurate case information and data. Being able to access timely data is crucial for public health officials and researchers. Meanwhile, the pandemic has widened the inequities of privacy rights and health security in terms of managing the spread of the coronavirus as well as the rise in surveillance technology. In times of disaster, technology companies may leverage access to information and data. In this context, undocumented citizens may be vulnerable to breaches in their privacy rights. This panel of legal experts considers the concerns of privacy rights, health security, and concerns of the undocumented community.
