In the final journal club we will discuss an article about ethics in data sharing

They took a data privacy approach to analyse a selection of interventions during the pandemic in South America.

Consider the questions below as a starting point for your discussion in the forum:

2) To what extent do different populations accept and or expect the sacrifice of individual privacy for the sake of speedy development of tools in a pandemic?
3) What can we learn from the experiences described in South America for dealing with future pandemics?
