    Great idea why why waste time making two separate apps to maintain when it could be a simple web-page?
    Every SEO guy knows every barrier to entry has big effects on take-up.
    And, those most at-risk are disproportionately the demographic who don't have (or know how to use) mobile devices.

    Humph.

    Pretty obvious I would say.

    Numerous bad actors with to confuse the data and ruin the project. That's why akamai, cloudflare are used; limit VPN and ToR endpoints. Each google play and apple store device has a unique long strong identifier. This makes it easier to limit it to UK territory and stops fake accounts opening up lots of accounts and entering incorrect or random data. It also makes individual handsets of bad actors outlier data that can be binned if required.

    Detecting fraud is standard practice for any website, particularly one collecting statistics. You check session cookies, IP addresses and define criteria to identify fraud. Suspicious activity is detected and the data rejected. Nothing to stop you entering in a bad result but that won't make any difference. You can only skew the result by sending in thousands of requests.

    Slightly off topic but there is some suggestion that this has been in the UK since January or before.

    Coronavirus 'Patient Zero' May Have Started Pandemic In November or Earlier

    My son was ill over Christmas, assumed it was flu and seemed to get better only to go downhill again. Said it was the worst illness he's ever had. Symptoms indicated it could have been covid.

    Just in case you haven't seen it, there's a more detailed map of deaths by local area:

    Having a quick nosy at that, locally the higher number of deaths do seem to be in areas with large care homes
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
