Coronavirus: This tiny country is posting the names and locations of quarantined citizens

Balkan authorities resort to publishing personal data online to stem the coronavirus outbreak.

In an effort to curb the coronavirus outbreak, authorities in the tiny Balkan country of Montenegro have chosen a drastic course of action.

The government is publishing lists containing the personal data of self-quarantined citizens who are thought to have come into contact with the potentially deadly COVID-19 coronavirus.

The self-isolating citizens are named on the basis of their recent travel history, having returned from countries deemed to have a high rate of infection.
