Thousands slip through test and trace net

Almost half of the nearly 16,000 people with coronavirus missed by the ‘Test and Trace’ system still have not had their contacts traced, the Health Secretary has admitted.

An ‘IT failure’ within Public Health England – a problem with an Excel spreadsheet reaching its maximum size – has been blamed by ministers for a delay in the reporting of 15,841 COVID-19 cases in England.

    COVID-19 = Fake pandemic, fake tests. They want full controll and millions of people are in danger because of curfews, quarantines and restrictions. Crimes against humanity.

    Brilliant! The UK's world beating system uses Spreadsheet. There are a wealthy of talented developers and coders out there but the government's system is either built on Spreadsheets and or stopped in its tracks because someone didn't realise the limits of a spreadsheet. Either way it's wholly incompetent and had put lives at risk.

    How can we trust in these people when they admit mistake after mistake weeks, and months after it's happened? Cases mean nothing now. Thousands could be hundreds positive, its down to their own fault in data.
