For all the scary numbers this outbreak is still very much causing fatality to the minority of the global population. 

That's not ok.  

 

You're talking about fellow humans who have every much of a right to life as you.

 

And it's all the more concerning because those numbers are going up.

 

An average of 65 deaths per day in the UK, in the last week, and rising.  

 

For Alexander de Pfeffel Johnson and his chums, they are acceptable losses.  

 

Not for me.  These are people's mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters.  

 

The recent easing of restrictions is feeding the curve.  They must be revised immediately.  Let's face it, we don't even have an effective track and trace, like other countries.  We're already starting from way behind.

Which countries have an effective track and trace in place?

And the landlord will have all their personal contact details of course, won't he? 

If it's anything like my local the answer to that question is a resounding 'no'. 

Although it's very well set up in many regards, there is only lip service paid to track and trace. Given the government's staggeringly incompetent inability to provide such a service I can hardly blame them for making such a poor attempt.

It's not so much a case of incompetence but a case of basically not having a system that unless compulsory for all simply does not work. The incompetence if any was trying to get one up an running in the first place.

Yeah - let's not try to track and trace - just let the virus run amok, overwhelm the NHS etc...................

 

What do you suggest we do?

I think I just did... Dont produce an app that does not work unless it is compulsory for all as the latter is its weak spot. It will not do what it is meant to do and to be of use it needs to be efficient and work.

But track and trace is far more than just an app.

 

Many Far Eastern countries carry it out very efficiently, without an app.

There has hardly been any uptake of the French app - it hasn't stopped them coming down like a ton of bricks on new outbreaks in this region of France (Nouvelle Aquitaine / South West).
