Victorian contact tracing still plagued by 'infuriating' data errors, contractors say
Marciano Alvarez's cake shop in Melbourne was listed as a COVID-19 exposure site earlier this month, but he's adamant an infected person could not have visited at the specified time because the store wasn't open.One nurse, who has been employed as a call centre worker, said the computer system they were using was riddled with incorrect data and they were concerned it could lead to coronavirus escaping back into the community.
Claudio Coccoluto became famous as the first European DJ to play in the New York Sound Factory Bar. Now the Italian has died at the age of only 59.
Italian DJ and producer Claudio Coccoluto is dead. He died last Tuesday at his home in Cassino, about 80 miles southeast of Rome. This was reported by the Italian broadcaster Radio Deejay, on which Coccoluto previously moderated. Accordingly, he had "fought against an illness for more than a year". He was only 59 years old.
