The Prime Minister has been warned that people are likely to delete the Quaid-19 app so that they are not informed that they will have to isolate themselves.
Boris Johnson was challenged today by the Prime Minister in response to questions about the expected increase in incidents after the easing of sanctions in England.
The so-called ‘Independence Day’, to be held on July 19, will mark the beginning of phase four of the government’s recovery roadmap, however, the rules of isolation will not change until August 16, four weeks later.
It is expected to see around 100,000 cases a day in the summer, leading to warnings that millions of people will be “pinged” through the app, saying that if a code-positive person Will need to isolate themselves if they have been in close contact with.
Labor leader Sir Care Starmer said: “It will not feel like Independence Day to those who have to be isolated.
“When they have to cancel their holidays, when they can’t even go to a pub or their children’s sports day and it won’t feel like Independence Day; businesses that have already been massacred because of the massacre. Staff and customers. “
He told the Prime Minister: “There are already a lot of stories of people deleting the NHS app. They must have seen these stories – and they are doing it because they can see what’s happening on the tracks. Is.
“Of course we do not support it, but it is possible to estimate it under their plan.”
Mr Starmer advised that lifting sanctions while maintaining isolated principles risked damaging the ارب 37 billion NHS test and trace program.
The rules of isolation in England will not change until August 16. If polio survivors have to come into close contact with a cowardly positive person, they will not have to isolate themselves but will be urged to take the test instead.
However, anyone who is tested positive for the coronavirus will have to isolate themselves, regardless of the vaccine.
Mr Johnson said: “Of course we will continue the isolation program as long as it is necessary. I thank everyone who is doing this.
“But of course what we’re doing is moving towards a testing system instead of isolating ourselves, and we can do that because of the massive expansion of the vaccine program.”
Many social media users have reported deleting the app to avoid notifications.
But Christopher Fraser, a professor at Oxford University, who advises tests and traces, told Times Radio that the use of the app was “high at all times.”
He said: “Overall, about 50% of test results go nationally through the app.
“This team monitors app usage, and usage is high at this time.”
When asked about the advice that 100,000 people could be infected every day in the summer, he said: “It results in a large number of people being detected, which is certainly an infection. Reduces rates and limits pressure on the NHS.
