UK plans to retain contact tracing app for future research


After the CEO of NHSx told the the UK parliament that data harvested by the NHSx contact tracing app would be retained for future research, the UK Ministry of Defence said it would turn the data over to its Jhub to sanitise the data and remove all personally identifying information before passing it on to NHSx. The app was due for improvements to its security after the code was released on Github and the app was trialled on the Isle of Wight.
