100,000 people across England self-tested (finger prick) and findings show that just under 6% of the population had antibodies to COVID-19. Antibody presence in a sample would indicate that that person has indeed contracted COVID-19 at some point. While the article has not yet been peer-reviewed, numbers tend to stand alone when looking at a subset of a population.
As in the U.S. workers in health care and care homes were the most likely to be infected and the minority populations were 2 to 3 times more likely to have had COVID-19. Antibodies were found in 96% of those who had a confirmed previous infection with those who had the more severe symptoms had higher numbers of antibodies….Carol
