England and Scotland Launched A Tracking System to Monitor the Spread Of Coronavirus
England and Scotland launched a tracking system on Thursday to monitor and contain the spread of the coronavirus.
The health authorities hope this will minimize the risk of contamination so that restrictive measures can be relaxed responsibly.
The system means that people who have tested positive for the lung virus will receive a message as soon as possible asking who they have been in contact with.
Those of the contacts who run a real risk of infection will receive the message that he or she must be in-home isolation for 14 days, even if there are no symptoms.
People who are tested for the virus should be informed within 24 hours, whether they are infected or not.
The tracking system must ensure that people stay at home if there is a risk of infection. This would make it possible to relax general measures that stop society.
