WHAT IS CONTACT TRACING

Highly infectious diseases such as Covid-19 and Ebola are transmitted through droplets and contact. In order to control their spread, it is very important to identify people who come in contact with an infected person so that they could be properly isolated, quarantined and given appropriate care.
 
The entire process of identification and management of people who have been exposed to any infectious disease to prevent any further transmission is called contact tracing. If properly applied, contact tracing can effectively help stop the spread of an infectious disease.
