Coronavirus: Time running out on track and trace, NHS leaders warn

21 May 2020 – BBC News

The NHS Confederation has warned of “severe” consequences to staff and patients if the right track and trace system was not established quickly.

It said lockdown measures should not be eased until a clear plan was in place, following the PM’s pledge to introduce a “world-beating” contact tracing system in England from June.

Contact tracing identifies those who may have come into contact with an infected person – either through an app or by phone and email – so they can avoid potentially passing the disease on.
