By Andrés Culagovski, from Abdala & Cía., member of DRT International Law Firm & Alliance in Chile. On February 26th, 2020, the first case of Covid 19 in Latin America was detected in Sao Pablo, Brazil. Countries throughout the region reacted by implementing a wide range of measures, reflecting national legislation, customs, and even ideology. The impact of those measures on personal privacy will have ongoing consequences throughout the region. One of the initiatives which have been most closely scrutinized is that of contact tracing.
