Who do we believe? Is the Health Department as risk-averse as Hickey
There is certainly criticism of reliance on smart phone apps for
contact tracing, and the Covid Card does have the advantage of
simplicity and no dependence on the technology knowledge on the part
of the user. However how accurate is it?
Its not clear what role Sam Morgan has had in the prposed development;
we don't know how the Rotorua trial went, and there may be more
problems with bluetooth than with smart phone technology.
Use of the Covid tracker has increased hugely in the last month; many
of us are finding it a lot easier with practice, and it helps that
there are more posters around early on queuing to register was
holding people up.
Our track and trace efforts seem to be working quite well; but it may
still be worth developing better solutions if we may be in and out of
Level 2 for a year or so. I understand the police can use mobile
phones to track people through mobile phones in some places - perhaps
that could be extended.
