THE COVID-19 SYMPTOM TRACKER
This app is not the Track & Trace App, but It is funded by NIHR (the research arm of the NHS) and over 4 million people are using it.
You simply report your health status once a day – It just takes a few seconds. It provides researchers and the government with accurate real-time data – the more of us who report, the better they know what is happening in each area and the earlier they are able to spot any local flare ups. It is also helping to with understanding the many medical issues connected with the virus.
Regular users are offered a rapid test (at home or at a government test facility) when they report any new symptoms that could be coronavirus infection.
