What is COVID-19 contact tracing

 

During an infectious disease outbreak, one of the best tools public health experts have is old-school detective work: finding each sick person and then figuring out who they recently interacted with. The technique, called contact tracing, helps get outbreaks of diseases like COVID-19 under control.

In order to lift social distancing measures like school closures and “stay home” orders, public health agencies will have to start aggressively contact tracing and at a much higher level than they were a few months ago.  

That will keep new cases of the virus from growing into new outbreaks. The US can only relax stay-at-home orders and social distancing policies if it’s doing enough contact tracing to catch new outbreaks before they explode.

Contact tracing is based on an obvious idea: people in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 are at risk of getting sick. The process isn’t easy. When a person gets sick, they are then interviewed by public health officials and asked who has been exposed to them. Then they take that list and fan out to ask those people either to pay close attention to how they’re feeling or to quarantine. If a person who was exposed is infected, their recent contacts will be tracked down, too. The process continues until everyone who’s been exposed is out of circulation. That stops virus transmission.

Critical study of Gilead’s Covid-19 drug shows patients are responding to treatment, NIH says

A government-run study of Gilead’s remdesivir, perhaps the most closely watched experimental drug to treat the novel coronavirus, showed that the medicine is effective against Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus.

In a statement on Wednesday, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is conducting the study, said preliminary data show patients who received remdesivir recovered faster than similar patients who received placebo.

The finding — although difficult to fully characterize without full, detailed data for the study — would represent the first treatment shown to improve outcomes in patients infected with the virus that put the global economy in a standstill and killed at least 218,000 people worldwide.

COVID-19 FAQs

 COVID-19: Contact Tracing FAQs Q: What is contact tracing? A: Contact tracing is a public health process used to find people who have been around someone with COVID-19 (known as a “Case”). People who were around the Case are called Contacts. There are several steps involved in the contact tracing process. • The Case will answer questions that help identify a list of their Contacts. Guidance is provided to the Case about how to stop spreading the disease and what to do until they recover. • Contacts are then informed they were exposed to someone with COVID-19 and what they need to do next. • Contacts are watched for symptoms and referred to medical care if they get sick. The health department provides resources to both Cases and Contacts to help them make it through the process. Contact tracing is private and no information about the Case or Contact is released or made public. Q: Why do I need to give out this information? A: The health department needs your medical information to determine your COVID-19 status and the best next steps. The health department will need your personal information to get in touch with you about your COVID-19 status and any help they can offer. The information you provide can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. Q: How did you get my information? A: Healthcare providers are required to report anyone with a positive COVID-19 lab test, or someone who is highly likely to have COVID-19, to the local health department. If you are a Contact of someone with COVID-19, we received your information from them. They identified you or a place where you have been that may have potentially exposed you to COVID-19.
