    All the recommendations made in a major audit of our country's contact tracing capabilities have been adopted

    All the recommendations made in a major audit of our country's contact tracing capabilities have been adopted


    Infectious disease specialist Dr Ayesha Verrall recommended eight measures to improve the way covid-19 is traced, and the health minister says they've accepted all of them.

    Five have already been completed - while work's in progress on the other three.

    David Clark says an app is in development, but it won't replace all measures to contact trace, like phone calls and meetings.

    He says any app that's released will be additive - supporting current efforts rather than being a silver bullet in itself.
