Abstract

With only 11% of Britons thought to be self-isolating when told to, the new contact-tracing app may be less effective than hoped. Rebecca Forman and Lucy Thompson (LSE) says poor public messaging, the fear of losing jobs and wages, and problems with getting essentials are major reasons for failing to comply.
