Latest interim results from the REACT-1 study on COVID-19 prevalence across England

This briefing covered the latest interim data from the largest community coronavirus testing programme, REACT.  This batch of data is an interim report from round 7 and includes swab tests carried out on 105,000 people across England between 13 and 24 November 2020.  The study gives an estimate of prevalence of COVID-19 and of R, and has data on different age groups and regions of England.

Please note this data is a preprint, so it is early work that has not yet been through peer-review and is not published in a journal.


Speakers included:

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

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