Not sure of those figures, but feeling tired for a day is not what I call a side-effect worth noting... same as saying that feeling a prick in the arm is a side effect of a jab. Serious side effects are the only ones worth tracking in my opinion.

Going back to the app (which I don’t have). Somehow it feels that those who have the app don’t mind being pinged and getting 10 days paid leave.

I have not met a single business person who has it purely because they don’t want to have to (unnecessary) isolate.

Some people are deliberately setting up a ping at the moment to get 10 days off work in the sun. It's all over social media on how to do this- it's so easy.

I don't have the app but it looks literally like 6-7 steps.

Like with any system I guess you get abusers. As soon as furlough goes I think there will be a step down in this but speaking with client's in construction they are saying that it's becoming a big issue with staffing.

I have it!

But I'm working from home anyway, so doesn't affect me much :P

I would rather risk side effects and being alive.

A neighbour who works at Nissan in Sunderland has told me they have just sacked 30 staff for having a Covid party. One got contacted by HNS track & Trace so had to isolate. They all arranged to meet before he did so and they all got pinged by the App. How Nissan found out I am not sure but they did and all are now out of well paid jobs.

They don’t even need to mingle. Just leave all the phones in a single room and let the COVID infected walk in
