hear from scientists who’ve done the new REACT-1 study on coronavirus spread across the country

The Real-time Assessment of Community Transmission (REACT-1) programme is the largest research project looking at viral spread across England.  It involved testing 120,000 volunteers for COVID-19 across England between 1 May and 1 June.

The results were posted in preprint form this morning. Journalists who wanted to hear from the scientists who ran this project and ask questions of them dialled into this briefing.

* Please note this was a briefing on a preprint, so it is a preliminary piece of research that has not yet been through peer review and has not been published in a scientific journal – so this is early data. *


Speakers included:

Prof Paul Elliott FMedSci, Director of the programme, and Chair in Epidemiology and Public Health Medicine, Imperial College London

Prof Steven Riley, Professor of Infectious Disease Dynamics, Imperial College London
