Or Track n Trace, or Test, Trace and Isolate. Take your pick. According to NS "Test and Protect is critical to the re-opening of schools". Indeed, along with social distancing this is now the only tool in the locker to control the virus. Call me naive, but the recent record of the SG on TracknTrace, i.e. Nike conference, and the highlighted tracking recruits, mostly unemployed uni graduates who havn't got a clue what to do so are being paid to watch Netflix and Youtube all day, doesn't inspire confidence. NS estimates that there are 25,000 in Scotland who are currently infected, who will be tracked, tested and isolated by our merry band of 2000 trackers in Scotland. They will then inform everyone they have been in contact with to self-isolate for 7 days (if alone) or 14 days if they are part of a family. Does anyone seriously think this is going to work? The whole Test and Protect system is predicated on the assumption of compliance. Portobello beach demonstrated just how compliant we are, "Stay at Home" anyone. If we failed to track n trace a handful at the beginning how on earth do we think we will cope better now with thousands out there infected. The R number, hospital admissions, and deaths will continue to drop throughout June and NS and BJ will congratulate themselves on a 'world-class' Track n Trace system. However we all know there is a 3-4 week lag in changes to restrictions so the numbers will pick up again in July, and by the time we reach August we'll be back to square one with the numbers heading in the wrong direction. Back in lockdown come Sep/Oct. So how will it work in schools? If a pupil or staff member is tested positive will you be able to track everyone they have been in contact with? Good luck with that!
