Bungling test and trace through big problems
Leaked emails say the NHS test and trace were hit by ‘major IT issues’ in October, which delayed the outbreak of the corona virus in care homes.
By mid-October, NHS officials revealed that the IT failure had occurred at a critical juncture in the second wave of the Pandemic.
This caused problems with software used by contact tracers who phoned people close to the Kovid-19 case.
Said the circles Patron In some Covid-19 hotspots in England, it took up to 48 hours for Covid-19 to reach the most vulnerable in the home care and hospitals.
Data show that performance for that week was at a record low, reaching only 43.6 per cent of the next contacts. Scientists say the corona virus must reach 80 percent within 24 hours to prevent it from spreading.
How does the NHS test and trace system work?
For those with symptoms:
Step 1: Isolate for at least 10 days. Your family should be isolated for at least 14 days from developing symptoms.
Step 2: Order a NH-generated NHS test online or call 119 to talk to someone.
Step 3: Isolate your family for at least 10 days and at least 14 days if you are positive – fines start at £ 1,000. Those who are negative can go.
Step 4: If you are tested positive, you should fill in the details of your recent direct contact on the NHS Test and Trace website. If you do not respond within 24 hours, you can contact the NHS local authorities for follow-up by phone or in person.
NHS Contact Tracers will try to find people you can contact. They will warn those people to be isolated if necessary. Isolation from contact with that person for at least 14 days – or a fine of up to 1,000. People in that person’s home should not be isolated unless you have symptoms.
If you have symptoms, you will be asked to contact the NHS test and trace system for a test. If your test is positive, you should stay home for at least 10 days and we will contact you to ask you about your contacts. If your test is negative, you still need to complete your 14-day self-isolation period.
