I agree with test, track and trace but I won't be touching this app with a barge pole.

https://9to5mac.com/2020/04/28/apple-api/ gives some of the reasons.

A number of the people involved with the UK app are ex-Cambridge Analytica staff and we know how concerned they are with privacy.

The Google/Apple API isn't an app itself but a interface that allows people/governments/countries to quickly, easily and securely develop their own. So the UK could still develop their own, and maybe even this time do it properly and actually put it out to tender (with a short deadline) rather than pick companies that they want to funnel the money to.

Extraordinarily concerned. Extremely interested in it.

When it's privacy that applies to what they are up to.
