One million people have downloaded the NHS contact tracking app on the launch of the new app – BBC News


A new NHS contact tracing app has been launched in England and Wales. Anyone over the age of 16 is encouraged to download it to their phone. It can alert you if you have had a close relationship with someone who is infected. However, England Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said it will not be a legal requirement to isolate people if the application requires it. Meanwhile, students at Scottish universities have been told they will break the law if they leave the accommodation and return home to be with their family. It comes after a major outbreak of coronavirus at Glasgow University, when more than 170 cases have been confirmed. It is estimated that more than a thousand students are self-isolated after appearances in Dundee, St Andrews and Aberdeen. In England, new local boundaries announced by the Prime Minister have come into force.
