CoMix data on social contacts since 17 May easing of restrictions

The CoMix social contacts survey, run by scientists at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, has produced regular reports throughout the pandemic on how many contacts people had, to identify the impact of social distancing interventions.

The team’s two new reports are:

– the latest CoMix report, that covers data collected since the last easing of restrictions (from 17 May);

– a preprint on the first year’s worth of data collection (from March 2020 to March 2021).

Please note both these reports are preprints, so they have not yet been through peer-review.

Journalists dialled in to this briefing to hear the scientists behind the reports describe the findings and what they mean, and whether there are implications for the future of the pandemic in the UK.


Speakers included:

Prof John Edmunds, Professor in the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Dr Christopher Jarvis, Assistant Professor in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
