“We will also be stepping up our testing on asymptomatic workers in facilities where there have been recent cases incl. In health care settings, essential businesses and tourist industry groups and also proactively testing contacts of new cases that were indicated regardless of symptoms. This will incl. household, workplace, and social contacts,” said Ashley Bloomfield

“Equally, contact tracing was one of the first things that we started to scale up, including creating a national service with more than 200 staff who have had the sole focus of tracking down close contacts of confirmed and probable cases.”

“Essentially, what we are doing here is transforming what was a very local manual process into a national automated system with scale.”
