COVID-19 Inquiry: Digital by Default

Added on 23 July 2020

A letter to the Editor of the Daily Telegraph, published on Friday 24th July 2020

Dear Editor,

In the House of Commons on Wednesday 15 July, the Prime Minister committed the UK government to an independent inquiry into the coronavirus pandemic.  As he stated, this will require “huge amounts of official time” as we seek to learn the lessons of the pandemic.  

Both this inquiry, and any future research into the pandemic, will require significant amounts of evidence.  This evidence will not be captured on paper but almost entirely as digital records: email, text messages, recordings, data sets and documents sitting on thousands of servers, with long chains of dependence upon platforms, interfaces, and applications.  These records will have been created by politicians and their staff, by government officials, advisors, and by a host of individuals outside of government, including private contractors.
