probably best you re-read the post you're replying to, maybe with an adult to explain what sarcasm is, and edit your reply.

I will leave the reply as is. Sadly sarcasm or not there are many people out there who feel the app is about them, and even worse, the app is about tracing their movements.

And now you've graduated from the sometimes-interestingly-combative to the merely delusional...

Its interesting how the NSW CMO says the app has played a part by identifying some who had the app installed who were at the Crossroads Hotel a part along with traditional contact tracing and the media pushing those who were at the pub to get tested. All working hand in hand. Its also been identified that those from foreign speaking backgrounds have not had the app installed which has made Victoria's job a lot harder.

Now if everyone had it installed ...........

He explained NSW Health has revised the times that infectious patrons attended Mounties, and said anyone who was at the venue on July 20 between midnight and 2.30am, July 21 between 12.15pm and 5.30pm, and 8pm and 12.30am, must self-isolate for 14 days.

“For one of the cases where NSW Health accessed the COVIDSafe App data, a previously unrecognised exposure date from a known venue, Mounties, was identified,” Dr McAnulty said.

“This resulted in the identification of an additional 544 contacts. Two people in this group presented for testing and were subsequently confirmed to have COVID-19.”

If this has only just been released though, it's not very helpful (not sure of date of release since no link to quoted source is given).

The isolation period is 14 days for point of contact isn't it? That means that there would only have been a couple of days left after the release.
