The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey produces estimates of the percentage of people testing positive for COVID-19 in private residential households across the UK, regardless of symptoms.

This is not affected by changes in testing policy or behaviour and is a useful indicator of the true prevalence and incidence of COVID-19. This reached its highest level at the beginning of February 2022 (7.9%).

There have been increases in prevalence and incidence in recent weeks.

In the study week ending 24 June 2022, the estimated number of people testing positive for COVID-19 was 71,000 (95% credible interval: 58,000 to 85,700). This equates to 3.87% of the population or around 1 in 25 people. This increased from 1 in 30 people the previous week.
