Less than half of Scotland’s contact tracing downloads active

Less than 50 per cent of the people that have downloaded Scotland’s contact tracing app are actively using it, according to the BBC.

Protect Scotland only has 950,000 active users, despite being downloaded by two million people.

The numbers come as Scotland experiences the highest number of positive recorded cases in the country since the pandemic began.

Last week saw a peak of 4,234 cases.

Active users account as those that still have the software downloaded and running, while non-active users are those who have either deleted or disabled the app, or have turned off Bluetooth on their phones.
