As of Thursday, any person tested positive for the coronavirus will need to communicate its interactions recent to dedicated teams of the public health service (NHS). People come in contact with a positive case will need to isolate themselves for a period of 14 days, whether they are or are not symptoms. These contacts include, according to the government, "members of the household, persons with whom the" patient "has had a direct contact or with which it is found for more than 15 minutes at a distance of less than two metres". Some 25,000 "tracers" have been hired to trace the contacts of 10,000 patients per day, a capacity which can be increased if necessary, in order to control the spread of the virus.

Northern Ireland already has a tracking system similar. Scotland and Wales will also launch their own. The device will also be based on an application, currently being tested on the island, English Wight, and the deployment of which at the national level is expected in the coming weeks. No precision was given in the immediate future on the use of this application.

"Isolates the individual"

The tracing "is the tool that other countries have used to open the prison (confinement), to ensure that we can move forward," said Boris Johnson. This device, which is at the heart of the strategy of the executive to the british in order to soften the containment in force for more than two months, also provides that any person symptomatic can now be tested, said the Health minister, Matt Hancock, at a press conference.

"We can start replacing the containment of the national isolates individual for those who have been in contact with the virus and of the local actions where they are needed", explained the minister. "This will help us to restore some of the freedoms that matter to people and do things that people are very eager to do, like see friends and family, book a holiday or go to the hairdresser. While controlling the virus," he added.

Objective : to 200,000 screens per day

The quatorzaine of the "contacts" is "voluntary" but could become mandatory if necessary, has warned Matt Hancock, Boris Johnson referring to the same possible sanctions. Closed since the containment decreed on the 23rd of march, some classes of nursery and primary schools will reopen on the 1st of June, and then the shops non-food in mid-June.

Criticized for his handling of the pandemic, the slowness to increase the capacity of screening and the lack of protective equipment for caregivers, Boris Johnson promised that the United Kingdom would be here on June 1 of a tracking system efficient. After you have painfully achieved the goal of a capacity of 100,000 screenings daily at the end of April, which is now scope to 161.000 according to Matt Hancock, the government is now targeting up to 200,000 tests per day by the end of may.

The United Kingdom is the second country in the world the most bereaved after the United States with 37.460 dead according to an official toll Wednesday (+412 in 24 hours). The balance sheet is more than the 46,000 of the dead if it takes into account the deaths among the suspected cases.

The database of the App has already been compromised but nothing amazing. Other interests are in games much more important than the health of the public. The government in England is a shame. Nothing surprising when one knows the past of Johnson, Gove, Hancock and Cummings. Unfortunately, there are 40,000 deaths on the passage, and this is not done... justice should establish their responsibility, but this will not be the case.

"Around 25,000 "tracers" have been hired"
selected non-contaminated (even without knowing) ? Otherwise they will contaminate the people interviewed, and on-contaminate (if it exists). a
15 minutes to close it is long.
