DHSC publishes findings from coronavirus (COVID-19) REACT study

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has published the latest findings from Imperial College London and Ipsos MORI’s REACT study on coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in England. It has been found that infections have fallen by approximately 60% from the last REACT study in February 2021, with only one in 500 people infected. It has also been noted that ‘data suggests infections have led to fewer deaths since December [2020], which coincides with the vaccination rollout and "Stay at Home" rules during this period’. The latest study also found that the prevalence of infections has plateaued, with the DHSC emphasising how critical it is that the public continues to follow the guidance and rules to help control the epidemic.

The REACT study was commissioned by the DHSC in order to examine the levels of infection in the general population. Over 140,000 volunteers were tested with PCR tests in England between 11–30 March 2021.
