The Government needs to step up and radically improve the test, track and trace system.
Hackney Council is a pioneer borough piloting localised tracking and tracing, but it is not getting the data it needs from the central system. If someone is tracked as having been close to an infected person, all Hackney gets is information that they live somewhere in the borough.
This is not good enough. We can’t return to any safe sense of normality until the Government gets this right.
