Wales & Scotland have wider confidence intervals since they are not currently enhancing app data by inviting app users for testing. This is also why we do not give a confidence interval for UK overall. 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.
Estimated on 28 May based on data from 10 to 23 May.
