In April, the Rathenau Instituut sent the House of Representatives five considerations for the parliamentary discussion on the coronavirus crisis. In August there were still some issues that needed to be questioned before taking next steps. Rathenau advised the parliament to further clarify:
- Will the CoronaMelder be adequately effective and therefore proportionate?
- Will the government enter into a far-reaching relationship of dependency with Google and Apple?
- How the app ensures that medical confidentiality is respected
