Librarians in LA become contact tracers to help fight virus

World Today

Over the last month, Los Angeles – the most populated county in the United States – has turned into one of the epicenters for the coronavirus, having registered some 200,000 cases and nearly 5,000 deaths.

The local government has since recruited more than 25,000 employees to work as “contact tracers” in an attempt to reach people who’ve tested positive for the virus or those who’ve come into contact with them.
