Samsung Health privacy settings

Samsung health now requires access to contacts, photos etc. I did not agree and the app is blocked. I need to open to measure oxygen levels for suspected covid but cannot as ;

I. Practical- the lack of access screen does not tell me which permissions are needed.
2. Ethical – the app wants to access all my personal data ( so far as I know). That looks unnecessary and infringes my human rights.
3. Legal – I bought the phone and the baseline apps and 0zygen monitor were part of that. Samsung is now restricting use after the event.

If other users have similar objections please post. As a minimum Samsung should be allowing anyone who has their appliances to use earlier versions of their apps without the mandatory invasion of privacy.
