The importance of contact tracing during the coronavirus pandemic

The benefits of contact tracing cannot be understated. In addition to highly anticipated COVID-19 tests and vaccines, public health officials know that the end of the pandemic also depends on effective contact tracing efforts. 

According to an analysis by the Lancet Infectious Diseases, contact tracing of COVID-19 patients in the early weeks of the outbreak reduced the time secondary cases were in the community by two days and reduced the volume of spread. The concept of contact tracing is simple enough: alert all parties who have come in contact with an infected individual to prevent them from spreading the disease further. However, contact tracing still requires a detailed plan and dedicated crew to enact.
