Weekly COVID-19 surveillance report published

By April 24, 2020National News

Public Health England will be publishing a COVID-19 epidemiology surveillance summary on a weekly basis at 2pm each Thursday. 

The report includes data from a variety of different sources: community, primary care, secondary care, virology and mortality surveillance data. Combined these sources show a wider community picture including a breakdown by age, gender, and geography which will help plan the national response to the pandemic and assist regional stakeholders in local planning. 

Disease surveillance is one of PHE’s core functions and involves gathering data from a range of sources to understand the areas and groups most affected by an outbreak, whether symptoms are getting more severe and when the outbreak might have peaked. 

The surveillance summary is available here (opens in a new tab) and each week’s report will be accompanied by an infographic. (pdf, opens in a new tab)
