Infections

This page provides an estimate of the proportion of the population that would test positive for COVID-19.

As this is a survey, areas are grouped together to ensure the data are robust – seven district areas are combined to give an estimate for Devon. South Hams is grouped with Plymouth and Torbay into a separate area and data for that are available from the source link below.

The COVID-19 Infection Survey measures:

  • how many people across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland test positive for a COVID-19 infection at a given point in time, regardless of whether they report experiencing symptoms
  • the average number of new positive test cases per week over the course of the study
  • the number of people who test positive for antibodies
