SUSAN HOPKINS TEST AND TRACE ADVISER
Dr Susan Hopkins is the only medic on the Test and Trace executive team and she also advises Public Health England. When PHE finally admitted that the data fiasco involved almost 16,000 positive Covid-19 cases, it was she who admitted that this meant thousands were only transferred to contact tracers last weekend. In July, she came out to defend PHE when it was widely criticised for its data recording methods, which meant anyone who was ever infected with the coronavirus and later died was counted as a Covid-19 death.
