Contact tracing-keeping the R number down

When someone has been tested positive for covid and they then give their contacts on the app, should they also be adding where they have been? So for instance if you've been in a supermarket around 1pm on a certain day, you would add that to the information to the app, a general message could then be added to the app informing everyone who uses it that someone who was in the supermarket at 1pm on that day, someone has tested positive, they could then. present themselves for testing. This would mean anyone who is positive and, as yet has no symptoms, would not pass on the virus to anyone else.

Why the contribution is important

This would help cutdown on infections therefore helping keeping the R number down.
