BIG data maximise the use of

We have a Scotland wide postcode system which drills down deep into areas often individual buildings. In conjunction with NHS 24, and TTIS use this data to identify trending hotspots : illustrating trends in ethnicity, age profile, school profile, transport profile, shops and supermarkets frequented.

Why the contribution is important

This would provide a tracebaility access like no other system available to us and would be of particular value in urban areas It would provide complete trend analysys and identifcation of many factors that maybe influencing the distribution of the virus even enabling targetted communications to specific areas.

    Test track and trace will enable the identification of hotspots and as the number of new cases reduces tracers should be supported to identify hotspots with incresing granularity. Scotland is lagging the rest of the UK. It needs to boost the following: 1) Timetable to adopt a tracking App - delayed to at least the end of May; 2) Inadequate testing targets - the programme to support test, track and trace needs to be increased to in excess of 50,000 tests per day; 3) Join with the rest of the UK to establish pool of tracers more rapidly. By going alone, Scottish Government is lagging UK by at least 2 weeks.
