this post is to gather all your opinions on the questionnaire.

[10:18, 08.04.2020] Paul Olivier: given the direction this whole COVID+data thing is taking, i would encourage you to do the contouring along digital device lines as well
[10:19, 08.04.2020] Paul Olivier: “do you use a smartphone? which operating system?” etc
[10:19, 08.04.2020] Paul Olivier: all things that could introduce bias in data collected for contact tracing

to update, delete or add questions: income(occupation), smoking (health). Ex. Avoid data privacy issues, a way could be to ask: would you consider your financial situation as: secured, at risk. Do you consider yourself in a financially secured able? or at financial risk?

Maurizio : I would put communication instead of Telecomunication
And add face to face communication respecting social distancing
For people who still go to work In an office or factory
