Things can only get better?

Some 68.6 per cent of close contacts were reached through the system, once dubbed “world-beating” by prime minister Boris Johnson, in the week ending 30 September, according to data published by the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC).

The "App" being told to be ignored by police,major employers and now school teachers,are morals being thrown out the window?

Correct me if i am wrong but isn't it some contradiction and the overwhelming issue seems to be for people to keep working despite the evidence of the "app"?

If there were 51,000 cases and only 6,000 were missed on the tracing system ( apart from a one off glitch of 11,000) then this seems to be quite good, or better than that?

51,475

Under 70% is dreadful.

Folk sat at desks watching netflix waiting to call contacts...

Test and trace has reached nearly 700,000 people and advised them to self isolate

I wonder how that compares to other countries, it seems a remarkably high figure

We have a large population.

30% wandering around, untold, spreading this virus is shockingly bad

Don't forget the untraced have contacts that will never enter the system

The government track and trace is badly failing

I think you have to take into account the one off glitch which skews things a bit
Also the fact of a large population makes it a bigger undertaking
It’s a lot of people successfully contacted
Report ----you-have-to-laugh--- October 8, 2020 4:55 PM BST
It's a lot of people not contacted, which is dangerous.

The whole system is the biggest waste of resources in the history of the country, a bigger waste than devolved administrations, and that's going some.

data also shows that 25.7 per cent of people who were tested for coronavirus in England in the week ending September 30 at a regional site, local site or mobile testing unit received their result within 24 hours.

This is down from 38 per cent in the previous week, and is the lowest weekly percentage since June.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson had pledged that, by the end of June, the results of all in-person tests would be back within 24 hours.

The test is a nonsense and doesn't differentiate between active virus and dead virus.

Those three lads trapped in Spain kept testing positive weeks after they shook off the virus.
Been in isolation since 19 August.

There were 51,475 positive cases out of a total 588,895 people tested.

So around 85k per day, not even close to claimed capacity of 200k plus

Heavy disinformation related sigh.

I find that when I turn the light on, sometimes it doesn’t work. People tell me this is because neither light bulbs nor electricity are quite 100% reliable but I’ve just decided to do without as I think this means electric light is rubbish.

I’ll be honest ( whether it’s worthwhile or not?  ) that 700,000 is a big surprise
It’s a massive achievement imo
