Hong Kong deploys police contact tracing computer system


The Hong Kong Department of Health has asked the police to deploy its computerised Major Incident Investigation and Disaster Support System in order to trace the contacts of patients infected by the novel coronavirus. The request for the system, which was used during the SARS epidemic in 2003, came after 59 police officers were placed under quarantine after a 48-year-old officer they had partied with tested positive.
