Over 54,000 people have downloaded the NHSX app since it went live on the Island back in May, but now it has been announced that it is unlikely to be rolled out nationwide before the winter months. Originally, it was said the app would be used exclusively by Islanders for a 2 week period before being made available to users across the country.
The local trial has been hailed a success but it has identified that manual contact tracing should have greater priority at this time.
Islanders are still able to use the app, although it has not been updated to include new information and symptoms. The app still doesn’t work on all devices, only supporting Android 8.0 and iOS 11 and above.
