Largest home antibody testing programme for COVID-19 publishes findings

Findings published by Imperial College London suggest that 6% of the population in England, around 3.4 million people, have been infected with COVID-19.

The study tracked the spread of infection across England following the first peak of the pandemic.  Over 100,000 volunteers tested themselves at home using a finger prick test between 20 June and 13 July to check if they have antibodies against the virus which causes COVID-19. Click here for more.
