ITV News published this video item, entitled “NHS Covid app tweaked so fewer contacts told to isolate amid ‘pingdemic’ | ITV News” – below is their description.
The NHS Covid-19 app has been tweaked so that fewer coronavirus contacts will be told to self-isolate, after recent figures showed more than 685,000 people were ‘pinged’ by the app in a single week.
The adjustment means someone needs to have been near a positive but asymptomatic individual two days prior to them inputting a positive test result to the app, rather than five.ITV News YouTube Channel
