    Default Contact tracing

    “ The outsourcing giants Serco and Sitel are being paid £192m to provide 18,500 call handlers who are responsible for tracing non-complex contacts referred to them.

    ...

    It comes as analysis shows that of the 184,703 contacts traced so far, only 23.8% of those were by Serco and Sitel.

    It means that their 18,500 call handlers have traced about two contacts each. The remaining 140,660 contacts were traced by 975 staff working in PHE’s teams — equivalent to about 144 each.“

    PHE will now be “reformed” - embarrassing the ministers with great work vs policy to outsource work

    Even better in Amurica. LM Jr's PS4 buddy over there went and registered for a test with his dad. Both sat there for half an hour, queue didn't move so they skipped the test and went home. The following day they both received an email that they'd tested positive.
