Listen right, it’s all about making people feel safe. It was the same after nine eleven. Flying felt really dangerous, so they put in security measures and yeah it was about screening people but it was also about making people feel safe. Same after Manchester, they did bag searches so everyone could feel safe to go back to theatres. Thing is with covid is that it’s everywhere, so you need to make people feel safe everywhere and that is what the app is designed to do. This app is the same as not carrying liquids or having your bag searched, it’s so we feel safe to go back to doing whatever we were doing before. Obviously, I don’t buy it, I work in tech and I know a few things — I mean don’t get me started on bluetooth — but I still downloaded it. How else are we going to get back to normal?
