Chi Onwurah comments on reports of issues with the development of the Coronavirus tracing app

Chi Onwurah, Labour’s Shadow Digital, Science and Technology Minister, commenting on reports of issues with the development of the Coronavirus tracing app, said:

“An app that works will save lives. We all need it to be successful to help control the spread of the coronavirus but, for that to happen, the public must have confidence in it.

“It is worrying that its development and roll-out so far has been chaotic because this will affect take-up and effectiveness. We urgently need clarity from the Government over the app’s progress and how our data will be used.”
