 I've been doing a little bit of investigative work on the subject this week. Not at all promising for T&T so far  :-X

Not at all, I have serious doubts about the efficiency of the implementation especially the lead time from starting with symptoms to getting a result as if that's too long it makes it pointless.  It needs to become significantly more efficient or the whole system falls down.

As I've said elsewhere, the main issue with this so-called track and trace is the opportunities it gives the scam merchants. I for one will deal with any calls in the usual way which usually involves more than just putting the 'phone down!

Would you give somebody who 'phones you up, out of the blue, your email address or any other personal information? Not b!@@6y likely!

I agree absolutely.  I was horrified to read that someone could phone us up and give us instructions to isolate.  Why would anyone believe that they are genuine?  I'm sure we've all had scammers who have sounded very plausible when they phone.  We are told we will be able to set up a security number.  Is that supposed to reassure us?  And of course many of us have call-blockers on the phone because of nuisance calls.  This is yet another half-baked idea from the govt that just is never going to work.

Why do we have to announce this as 'world-beating'?
Why can't we just have a system which we are building to be as competent as possible?

Thank goodness that some of the Sage scientists are going public. A great pity that Witty and Valance haven't.  Are they waiting for gongs and peerages?
