I don't see how contact tracing can work properly without an app. How can you track people who have been in contact on buses or trains?

Half the population have been hired to follow the other half and log their movements.  It has started already.

BTW it’s about time you changed your shirt and you need a haircut.

Like we aren't all being tracked 24/7 anyway. The only difference about the app is they'll tell us about it. Presumably Covid19 is a notifiable disease so they get access to your phone and are able to link your locations back in time with other phone locations. Just working on my tin foil hat.

Just me who thinks the test and trace program sounds like the clap test?

Hancock saying that Test and Trace is voluntary.

So if they phone you up and you've been in contact with someone who has tested positive, you can do whatever the f**k you like.

This a very definite shift from "You must follow the guidelines".

Has something happened to cause this?

Contact tracing is going to be great the moment one of my ICU colleagues tests positive and all the staff are going to have to isolate...

£36m spent on snake oil and now -

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/05/27/france-bans-use-of-hydroxychloroquine-to-cure-coronavirus-283724

France bans use of hydroxychloroquine as coronavirus treatment

'For its part, the World Health Organization announced Monday that it's temporarily halting the hydroxychloroquine part of its global Solidarity trial amid a safety review.'

We bought this on the recommendation of Trump who hasn't died yet from taking it. Yet the W.H.O. doesn't recommend anyone takes it to counter COVID-19 due to its side effects aren't worth listening too because Trump thinks they have political bias towards China.

We are run by fuckwits.

Quelle surprise.

“Bigger stationary bills In Whitehall than £36m though” kind of misses the point.

It's utter nonsense to expect you also to remember everyone you have been in close proximity to for a prolonged period.

In the short term an app absolutely is a reasonable solution. It's also reasonable to make it compulsory and spot fine anyone who is out of the home and does not have it installed.

That way anyone who should get tested can record they have had a test.

Is it a bit big brothery? Yes. But if it's short term so what?

What if you don’t have a smartphone?

Never thought I'd see the day where people are condoning using methods straight out of Orwell's famous book because it's short term, so who cares?

Fucking hell.

Absolute NAP you have never read a single EULA in full or denied an app any permission it asks for. What's so different here?

Given the choice of accept this short term and you can do something beyond shopping and work, or don't accept it stay home, anyone who would choose the latter is lying or has something to hide.

Then you don't get access to an enhanced set of freedoms until you opt into the 21st Century first.
