In response to the Government’s announcement that an updated version of the ‘Test and Trace’ app will be trialled in Newham, local London Assembly Member, Unmesh Desai AM, said:
“Newham has sadly been one of the hardest hit areas of the capital during the pandemic.
“To protect local people against a potential second wave, we will need to use all the tools at our disposal. This is why I welcome the Government’s decision to trial a renewed version of the Test and Trace app in our borough.
“In the meantime, from City Hall, I will keep pressing for answers as to why Newham has been so disproportionately impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak, compared to other neighbouring boroughs with similar demographics and levels of deprivation”.
