The novel coronavirus pneumonia is 6% of the UK’s population, which is far higher than the British government’s statistics, and has surpassed the number of new crown pneumonia patients in Brazil and India, the UK’s media reported. According to a recent study, it has become the world’s second largest emerging country.
it is reported that the research was carried out by Imperial College London and participated by more than 100000 volunteers. It is the largest home-based detection project of antibody against new coronavirus in the world. The project uses a simple fingertip home test to assess the current outbreak of the new crown in the UK. The study tracked the spread of infection in England after the first peak of the outbreak, and volunteers tested themselves at home between June 20 and July 13. The project showed that as of July 13, 6% of the population in the UK had been infected with the new coronavirus. This number surpassed Brazil and India to become the world’s second-largest new coronavirus infected countries, while only 315581 people were confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus in the official statistics of the United Kingdom.
statistics show that people living in London are most likely to be infected, as are those who work in nursing homes and medical institutions, black people, Asians and other ethnic minorities, and people living in extended families. According to statistics, 13% of people living in London have antibodies to the new coronavirus, compared with less than 3% in southwest England. The infection rate of people working in nursing homes and health care institutions is much higher than 5% of non key workers. The study found that 17% of black volunteers had antibodies, and 12% of Asian and “other” minorities each. That’s only 5% of white volunteers. According to the age, the highest antibody rate was found in 18-34 years old population, which was 8%, and the lowest antibody incidence rate was only 3% in people over 65 years old. However, according to the income of infected people, the antibody carrying rate of volunteers in poor areas is slightly higher than that in rich areas. Smokers were slightly less likely to develop antibodies than nonsmokers, 3% and 5%, respectively, while 32% of people with antibodies did not show symptoms, while the proportion of people over 65 years old increased to 49%.
British Health Minister Edward agar praised the research as an important progress in the UK’s fight against coronavirus. “Large scale antibody surveillance studies are essential to understand how the virus spreads across the country and whether specific populations are more susceptible to infection, and we will continue to work to reduce the spread of the disease,” agar said in a statement “We don’t know if the antibodies are immune to the new coronavirus, but the more information we can gather about the virus, the easier we can get people involved in these studies, and we can respond better,” he said “The British public has played a huge role in ensuring national security, and I urge them to consider participating in one of the many important monitoring studies to be carried out in the coming months as part of our national testing efforts.”
Professor REHAM cook, Professor of infectious disease research and research leader at Imperial College of technology, said: “the use of finger prick tests for large-scale home testing gives us the clearest understanding of the spread of the virus in the UK and who is at greatest risk.” “These data will have an important impact on the UK’s decision to relax the blockade.” However, the authors of the study cautioned that having antibodies to the new coronavirus does not mean immunity to the new coronavirus, and there is no evidence that the antibody will prevent people from re infecting the new coronavirus.
