[Urgent]Daily check-in numbers for contact tracing app

Felix Lee made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Felix Lee to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Felix Lee

Dear Ministry of Health,

I would like to make an OIA request regarding the NZ COVID Tracer app and I would like this handled urgently.

The Privacy Assessment [1] paragraph 31 mentions analytics events are captured "When the Consumer uses the ‘scan location’ feature".

I would like to request:

- the daily number of 'scan location' analytics events for all the days you have data for

I request urgency because COVID is a fast moving event and data is often obsolete by the time we get it if it's delayed even by a week. There is high public interest in making sure the government's tracing app is being widely used.

If possible, can I please ask this data to be proactively released every day on the Ministry's website to save me from making repeated request.

I confirm I am a citizen eligible to make OIA requests.

Thank you for your continued hard work during this crisis.

Yours faithfully,

Felix Lee
