and because i know some of you like a graph
I would guess through contact tracingThis graph makes no sense. The politicians are always saying the biggest spreading is between households meeting in each others homes, hence the rule of 6 - Where is that on the graph? Likewise pubs and restaurants keep being targeted but the proportion spreading there is tiny. On the other hand, workplace looks more significant in the recent weeks than we have been led to believe.
How do these people actually know for sure where they caught it from anyway?
So it's basically a pointless battery drainer then! I thought the whole idea was to get alerts if somebody tested positive at a venue that you had visited. I can see most people not bothering with it if it serves little purpose.The effectiveness of England and Wales’s coronavirus app is under the spotlight once again after the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) said it does not expect to send out alerts frequently from QR code check-ins.
People are able to scan codes on posters before entering venues such as pubs and restaurants using the app, allowing NHS Test and Trace to send an alert to anyone who has visited somewhere that experiences an outbreak.
The first Saturday after the app launched 1.5 million venue check-ins were recorded.
It was heralded as an important way to help contact tracing efforts, alongside separate Bluetooth contact tracing which keeps a log of individuals a person comes into close contact with.
But according to Sky News, only one alert has been sent about a coronavirus outbreak in a venue since the service was launched two weeks ago.
Given that it became a legal requirement for certain venues in England to display QR code posters on September 24, DHSC said it would not yet expect to see large numbers of alerts having been sent out linked to outbreaks.
It is not compulsory for businesses to display QR code posters in Wales.
The main benefit of the QR check-in feature is to serve as a digital diary that can be used as a memory prompt if a user is diagnosed with coronavirus and contacted by NHS Test and Trace, the department added.
