Covid-19 infections are back in a state of near exponential growth. The daily infection rate over the last three weeks has gone from 3000/day two weeks ago to 6000/day last week and 10,000 a day this week. i.e near doubling every week.
Without appropriate action within a month it could be back towards the 100,000/day seen at the peak of the crisis.
Those two actions are:
- more rigorous social distancing
- isolation of those infected during the infectious stage.
To better achieve the latter the government / NHS has introduced its contact tracing app: the NHS COVID-19 app to install on your smartphone. You download it from the Apple App Store (i-phones) or Google Play Store (Androids.)
It’s the fastest way to see if you’re at risk from coronavirus. The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect your loved ones and community.
The app has a number of tools to protect you, including contact tracing, local area alerts and venue check-in. It uses proven technology from Apple and Google, designed to protect every user’s privacy.
