Big brother-ish but the data used in aggregate can be really useful. Just think of how Google Maps lets you see what the traffic is like... that's from tracking everyone's phone.

I think we're ultimately going to have to assume every person is a potential carrier, sadly.

There's been more about this recently in the news too. It's voluntary as far as I know but I guess that could change.?
