Closed petition Take immediate action to find and isolate COVID-19 cases and recent contacts

The World Health Organization has recommended that countries test every suspected case of COVID19, and isolate and treat every confirmed case. It also recommends that they trace every contact and isolate those for 14 days. We call on the UK government to do all these things.

More details

The Director General of the World Health Organisation has said: "Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled. The challenge for many countries […] is not whether they can do the same; it's whether they will." The UK is one of the few countries to stop contact tracing and quarantine. The UK needs to act in concert with the rest of the world to suppress and control this virus, both for ourselves and other countries, especially those which may have weaker health care systems.
