Something needs to be done. The other week, some young idiot of a girl (aged 18/19) that I barred from our pub a few months ago, tested positive. Instead of self isolating, carried on as normal, going out drinking & socialising. She passed it on to a number of her friends. Typical mentality of that age group.

From the BBC website: Coronavirus: Police get access to NHS Test and Trace self-isolation data

Do you think it is right that the Police should have access to the track and trace data?

Yes I think they should, in fact I'd go one further and say that they should appoint people to oversee the running of the App as it certainly needs taking in hand. When you see the salaries associated with the management side of T&T you have to wonder why we hear of any issues other than those saying how it works, fair enough that doesn't sell news but that's the media's problem.

Too right they should and then they can go and get the law breakers. Trouble is there wasn't enough of them before covid so what can the poor buggers do now.

I think everyone who’s had or gone cv19 should be put on a national database for everyone to see. That way we know who’s not isolating and who’s off work genuinely.
I know it won’t happen due to confidentiality rules

No

Track and trace is still a mess and will lead to large scale arrests of folk who arent infected nor been anywhere near infected folk, the system fails when an individual can get two different ID numbers and recieve conflicting information and advice from them both

Should the police get the previously told confidential information and were to act on it then my guess would be lots of folk avoiding a test and uninstalling the tracking app thus making it harder to eradicate the virus rather than easier

Police numbers would have to rise dramatically overnight to allow policing to carry on at the same rate and cope with the extra work load of CV policing, from my conversations with serving officers they dont want it either

In fact go one better, anyone tested positive ignoring isolation could be shot on sight by the army, coronavirus could then go on their death certificate, died for breaking coronavirus rules

Seems odd she would get a test in the first place if she is going to do nothing about it

I know someone whose daughter works in a NHS hospital and was tested (no symptoms) on 11th October and was informed by track and trace yesterday that she is positive and to self isolate until 24th. A week of delay in getting results out is unacceptable and potentially dangerous

I think it’s going to put more people off loading the App and some that have it may now delete it. I believe something has to be done but, I don’t think taking the country down the military state route is the way to go.
