The new contact-tracing app from the NHS
A new contact-tracing app, built by the NHS, launched in Isle of Wight. It has already been trialled at an RAF base and will form part of the next phase of the government's test, track, trace and isolate approach to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
The Government hopes to begin a national rollout of the app the following weeks.
“This ground-breaking technology, combined with our heroic frontline health and social care staff, and both a nationwide contact tracing testing programme will ensure that we remain in the best position to move toward easing the lockdown,” health Secretary Matt Hanckock said.
