CONTACT TRACING

Have you been contact traced?

If you were contacted traced, would you be willing to give out info, or even could you give out the necessary info to use in this old tracing community health procedure?

 

It is not working too well at the present time. 

Maybe our public health system really needs to come into the 21st Century.

I'm not too sure this would work since the time you would feel symptoms from your exposure to the virus might be 10 days-14 days and the time to get the test (positive or negative) would be another 7 to 10 days.  After three weeks have gone by, who really remembers who and what places they have gone?

 

Maybe some that are young remember but after a week goes by, I have difficulty saying when anything took place.

Apparently some want to make assumptions about healthcare and highlight its 'failures" while ignoring the full picture.

 

The current WH regime has failed in funding for contact tracing.   Some seem to believe that the current recession has no effect, at a State or Local level, which is nonsense.     The FED provided funding of about $700m, which does not go very far when the number of contact tracing personnel that need to be hired and trained is about 100,000-300,000, but the funding will not cover that number.  The estimated cost for that contact tracing is estimated to be 3.6Billion

 

As some of the States refused to shutdown any operation and others focused on how little they could shut down and then how quickly they could open, the contract tracing would never work.    But that is what the CDC / HHS is pushing - an underfunded process that they engineered to fail via too little and too late.  

 

One has to ask:  Did the FED purposefully undermine this process as donald said it was a hoax and it would magically disappear?

You are correct it is not working to well. It is designed to work when you have the virus under control, and has worked in other countries that did that. We have States were the virus is totally out of control and growing so fast you can not use contract tracing. Your State GA is one of them. Just this evening we saw your Governor over rule the mayors of some of your largest cities and end the requirement to wear masks which means more cases and deaths. Ga. joins FL, TX, AZ as States with Gov. who follow what Trump wants done with the virus which is really nothing for why he takes this path read Mary book as she explains it.

Hard to believe it was back in April that Trump announced  "The CDC says they'll soon release a plan to help state and local governments with contact tracing, but Massachusetts has already started building its own contact tracing system."

 

I don't seem to recall hearing that this system went into play.  So much of what Trump says is about what he is "Going to do" and so little about what he has actually done.
