Isle of Wight And Newham To Trial New Coronavirus Contact Tracing App

Residents of the Isle of Wight, the London borough Newham, and NHS volunteer responders across England will be part of a new contact tracing app trial, the Department for Health and Social Care has said.

The app will include alerts based on postcode, QR check-in at venues, a symptom checker and a way to book tests, using Google and Apple-developed technology.

Trials will start from Thursday on the Isle of Wight and with NHS volunteer responders across England, followed shortly by Newham residents, as part of the country’s NHS Test and Trace service.

It will log the time and distance a user has spent near to anyone, even if they don’t know them, so it can alert them if necessary if that person later tests positive for Covid-19.
