Abstract

Drawing on a qualitative study consisting of five focus groups, Simon Williams, Christopher J Armitage, Tova Tampe and Kimberly Dienes find that people are currently torn over whether or not they will use the contract-tracing app when it is available. They discuss the main concerns that emerged from the research and offer some key recommendations for ensuring that there will be sufficient uptake.
