Britain to trial new coronavirus tracing system

LONDON, May 3 (Reuters) - Britain will trial a new coronavirus tracing programme next week on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England, cabinet minister Michael Gove said on Sunday as the government looks at how to minimise the risk of a second wave of infection.

“This week we will be piloting new test, track and trace procedures on the Isle of Wight with a view to having that in place more widely later this month,” he told a news conference. (Reporting by Estelle Shirbon; Writing by William James; Editing by Andrew Cawthorne)
