On 16 March 2022, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published data about the characteristicsof people testing positive for COVID-19 from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey. This includes data on how often individuals in Scotland are reporting social contact with other people outside their own household (either socially distanced or physical contact), and estimates of the percentage of people in the UK testing positive that reported symptoms. This is a data only release, therefore we are not publishing an article on the Scottish Government website; the dataset can be found on the ONS website.
The latest articles on the characteristicsof people testing positive for COVID-19 were published on 2 March 2022 on the Scottish Government website and the ONS website. This release includes UK level data on the characteristics associated with testing positive and symptoms profiles of strong positive cases, and Scotland level data on the contacts of those testing positive.
The ONS will publish the next full bulletin on characteristics data from the COVID-19 Infection Survey on Wednesday 30 March 2022. This release of characteristics data will also be published on the Scottish Government website.
