Wales & Scotland have wider confidence intervals

since they are not currently enhancing app data by inviting app users for testing

The procedure to estimate daily new cases was adjusted on 24th June to account for the increasing number of antibody test results reported by our users.

Too few participants in Northern Ireland to generate a good estimate. Wales & Scotland have wider confidence interval since they are not currently enhancing app data by inviting app users for testing. These figures exclude care homes as there is not enough data from the app to estimate this population.

This analysis requires swab testing, which was kindly provided by the English Department of Health and Social Care.
