How does it handle asymptomatic cases?

QUESTION

Lady Deakin asked:
I also wasn’t sure how cases are fed into the system? Does this just rely on people being identified through routine testing if they have symptoms or were found to be a close contact of a case? Post vaccine there may still be some cases, but they will be asymptomatic most likely so its not clear how these would be identified.

ANSWER

It is ironic that the more real vaccinations occur, the less severe the symptoms, the less chance people will be going to get tested - reducing the ability to detect virus spread.

Virtual Vaccine has a special feature to handle that situation, which will be published here following the completion of the https://web.contacttrace.com.au/virtual-vaccine/anonymous-exchange/ page in a few days’ time.
