HR-6666-and-Contact-Tracing-with-COVID-19-on-The-Call-Room-with-Dr.-Robert-BerryWelcome to this week’s episode of The Call Room with Dr. Robert Berry, where we talk about house legislation that was recently introduced to be considered. It’s called the “COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act” and it is aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 through tracing your recent contacts. With rates in America rising exponentially, action is needed to save the lives of Americans and get us back to normal life as soon as possible.

But of course, it’s not that easy. With an infectious disease such as this, America’s delayed onset of action has made a slowing of spread much more difficult. So while contact tracing may reduce the spread, is it enough to be worth the cost?

Listen in to learn more about the recently introduced TRACE Act, and how our government is hoping they can use it to slow the spread of COVID-19.

“The flattening of the curve was to prevent overwhelming of our healthcare system. It doesn’t prevent the inevitability of spread.” – Dr. Robert Berry
