Coronavirus (COVID-19) roundup: 14 August 2020

ONS published the latest results from the COVID-19 Infection Survey, and up-to-date indicators of how people are adapting to new government guidelines. Some of the main points include:

  • There is some evidence of a small increase in the percentage of people in England testing positive for COVID-19 in July, following a low point in June, but this now appears to have levelled off

  • As of 9 August 2020, 6.2% of people aged 16 years and over tested positive for antibodies to COVID-19

  • A third of adults (33%) have said that their household would not be able to afford a week’s holiday this year

  • Adults said the requirement for self-isolation upon return from outside the UK had affected their travel plans; 1 in 5 (20%) reported that they had cancelled their plans, and 14% said they’d decided to holiday in the UK instead of travelling abroad this year
