I think research showed that antibodies for Covid disappear after 2 months (or half life was 2 months, I can't remember).

But your B and T cells may still have the memory to generate more antibodies quickly. But testing for that is far more difficult

Police to get access to NHS test and trace app data.

I can’t say I’m hugely excited by the prospect of this given the hopelessly inconsistent and incorrect enforcement of lockdown rules by various police forces previously. I suspect it will lead to a lot of people removing the app.

In other news, a conversation with MiL last night reinforced how little people understand the rules and their willingness to follow them.

MiL was ranting about Andy Burnham and the north and people not obeying the rules which was why they got locked down (after having a bit of a go at me when I commented that the mask rules in restaurants seemed a bit pointless), then immediately followed this with a comment about visiting her friends and distant family, none of whom live in the same house. Mr C pointed out to her that what she’s doing is against tier 2 restrictions and she initially said it was ok because she’d had the virus, then changed it to ‘well, they’re family so it’s ok’, then tried to claim she was in their support bubble, then just gave up and said ‘oh well, who’s going to stop me?’ FFS.

Point of pedantry, looking at the article it appears to be data from the test and trace service, the one where they call you and tell you to isolate. Not from the app. There is no identifiable data from the app.

With that out of the way, I agree with you on your second point.

You're right, the initial reports I read this morning said the app, but on further reading and later reports, it specifies test and trace rather than the app itself.
