Fewer contacts of people with COVID-19 will be told to isolate by the NHS Test and Trace app after an update today.

The “logic” which underpins how close contacts are identified and notified will be changed following a review into the NHS COVID-19 app by the health secretary, the Department for Health and Social Care says.

It will now only look back at contacts two days before someone tests positive, as opposed to the five days of contacts the app was tracking before.
