Zahawi defends the NHS Track & Trace app amid criticism

Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi has defended the use of the NHS Track & Trace app saying the app has saved "thousands of lives". The minister admitted, though, that the app needs to be "adjusted" to reflect the current levels of double vaccination in the society. His comments come following the criticism of the app with businesses complaining their staff are being "pinged" by it, and subsequently forced to isolate for 10 days, even when they have had a recent negative Covid-19 test.
