Tool safety is not crucial just for the production of physical parts and mechanical devices, but it has also had an important role in the monitoring of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this episode Dr. Oscar Slotosch responds to the recent news of the English government losing thousands of data entries by their unsafe use of Microsoft Excel, which may have caused irreversible damage to the contact tracing and pandemic containment efforts in the United Kingdom.

This oversight has been covered by the BBC, in news articles discussing the mismanagement of Excel data and its consequences.
