    This would, potentially, give people more information- which can only be a good thing. We know that certain activities e.g. going to the supermarket involve an element of risk- it would be good to have more detail about how much. This would surely help convince people to adhere to current self distancing rules? The only downside is I don’t know how accurately people can be about where they picked up the infection?

    Given the lengthy incubation period it will not be possible to establish exactly in what setting SARS-CoV2 was acquired for each case, and giving risk ratings for specific activities or locations will be similarly impossible.

    They should publish carehome figures - what carehome facilities, the quantity of people within those carehomes (employees, elderly), and how many have been tested and the result. This will help inform the public of position carehomes are in and where they are heading.
