Re: Coronavirus: NHS contact-tracing app - Dido Harding heads track and trace programme
It seeems that others are foreseeing a problem:
UK track and trace delayed as ministers don't know how they'll get people to isolate
Ministers are discussing whether to enforce isolation as part of the test, track and trace scheme amid concerns it will be difficult to get people to stay at home when lockdown measures are eased.
Senior sources inside government have told Sky News there is an ongoing conversation about how to ensure people stick to the new measures.
Ministers want to find a way to persuade rather than force the public to stay at home because of fears that heavy-handed measures would go down badly.

A key part of the new tracing process is ensuring those who may have the virus stay away from others in a bid to curb the spread. Without this aspect, the system will not work effectively.
One expert said asking people to isolate themselves would be "very difficult indeed" as soon as others start to go about their daily lives again.
