ABC 7 Story Focuses on Contact Tracing

Illustration of contact tracing, showing how an infected person infects another out of a group of people.  The new infected person then infects a new person in a different group, and so on.

SPH's Dr. Mark Dworkin, professor of epidemiology, was interviewed by ABC 7 Chicago on the urgent need for contact tracing after lack of availability of testing allowed COVID-19 infections to spread across Illinois.

If we can get more control of this, then we could get back to every case, finding who are their most likely contacts and restricting them in some way so they can’t go on and become that that next case that transfers yet again to somebody else.
