Coronavirus: Stephen Barclay 'not aware' of a flaw in tracing app

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury says he was “not aware” of a flaw in the NHS contact tracing app which was reported by Sky News.

Workers with low incomes on benefits are entitled to receive £500 if they cannot work from home while they self-isolate.

But a hidden flaw in the process for claiming the payment means they can only claim the support if they are given a code by a human contact tracer.

    If they can get everybody with a permanent RFID Chip embedded in their body that will be it. No French Resistance or American Revolution or Vietnam Anti War movement will ever be possible again without the Ruler’s Approval. That’s the Endgame with this “Virus”.

    Yet another blustering, lying tory, making it up as he goes along. The arrogance of them is astounding. The reason they come on your show but not C4 and GMB is that they are given an easy ride, just allowed to waffle on and on and on.

    Whether the app works or not is not the point. The issue is WE DON'T WANT YOUR CREEPY, SINISTER TRACING APP.

    What does the amount of people who have downloaded the app have to do with the fact people can't apply for the benefit money..

    The app has had nothing bad bad publicity from day one. Never mind the major bugs. Even our GP's have said it was "a disaster and a national shame".

    Now your saying your handing out fines of £10,000 to those who are breaking the rules and using the app.. The app that is riddled with bugs and is notorious for its miscommunication.

    The idea of the app seems fine. However it seems more like an enabler for the goverment to fine £10,000 to people. I understand it only fines those who break the rules, But who exacly decides that?

    What reason do i have to use this app?

    A 2019 WHO report on pandemic measures states that contact tracing is not recommended in any circumstances. That has since been completely disregarded with no explanation or justification.
