Q&A on the launch of the NHS Test and Trace App

We hosted some of the experts involved in informing and advising on the NHS Test and Trace App – which launched today in England and Wales – to answer journalist questions.

Their expertise focuses around providing the evidence as to why we need a digital contact tracing system, what we understand about COVID-19 transmission, and how a contact tracing app can fit into a broader toolkit of infection control measures, including manual tracing, testing and social distancing.

 

Speakers included:

Prof Christophe Fraser, Senior Group Leader in Pathogen Dynamics at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Medicine and scientific advisor to the Test and Trace Programme.


Dr David Bonsall, Clinician and Senior Researcher at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Medicine and advisor to the Department of Health & Social Care.

Dr Lucie Abeler-Dörner, Scientific Manager at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Medicine and scientific advisor to the Test and Trace Programme, Department of Health & Social Care.
