Nick Abrahams, a Norton Rose Fulbright partner who specializes in technology and privacy law, and 47 other privacy law specialists from Australian and international law firms, signed an open letter announcing they have all downloaded a government-sponsored COVID-19 tracing app and fully support it.

The app, dubbed COVIDSafe, is designed to speed trace people who have come into contact with a person with the coronavirus and is one of the measures put in place by Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison as the government prepares to reopen the country.
