Millions in the UK were continually tracked by their own phones, without their knowledge, after receiving a vaccine, a report claims. Phone users were being tracked for a government study into how their movements changed after receiving a jab. Data from one in ten people's phones in Britain was tracked in February, scientists reportedly admitted. Privacy campaigners branded it a "chilling" use of personal data.
The cellphone data was used by researchers at Oxford University, who were carrying out studies for the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours (SPI-B). The group advises the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) on psychological warfare.
