Your data is helping beat COVID-19

For those of you in the UK who are taking part in the COVID-19 Symptom Study, see the latest update below.

Dr Claire Steves and Professor Tim Spector delve into the latest data from the COVID Symptom Study. They will share data around those who have been hospitalised and factors that place them at risk. This includes lung disease, type 2 diabetes, lung disease, asthma, obesity and other co-morbidities.

'New clinical trial

As countries around the world begin to ease lockdown restrictions, it is of utmost importance that we put measures in place to prevent a new wave of infections. Public health authorities and healthcare services are in greater need than ever of strategies that can help them more easily and quickly identify COVID-19 cases.

We are going to be supporting a clinical trial by King's College London on diagnosing coronavirus by using symptoms reported in the Covid Symptom Study app.

All adult UK-based users of the app reporting for themselves who have not previously reported a positive COVID-19 test will be offered the opportunity to participate in this study. You will see this communicated in the app soon. When we launch the trial we will share much more detail.'
