Govt must move faster to improve NHS Test & Trace system

Responding to news that the NHS Test and Trace system is still failing to find a quarter of people who have tested positive for COVID-19, Liberal Democrat Health, Wellbeing and Social Care spokesperson Munira Wilson said:


“The latest NHS Test & Trace figures suggest the system is not improving at the rate that it needs to.

"With lockdown restrictions due to be eased further from Saturday, a robust and effective system to test, trace and isolate every case of coronavirus to keep people safe is absolutely critical.

"Ministers must move much faster to improve the Test & Trace system and local authorities must be at the heart of those efforts. This means providing real-time, postcode-level data now on positive tests so that local Directors of Public Health, who have the expertise and local knowledge, can ensure any outbreaks are suppressed at an early stage.”
