9 out of 10 adults tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies
4 August 2021
Across all four countries of the UK, 9 out of 10 adults would have tested positive for antibodies against SARS-Cov-2 in the week beginning 12 July 2021.
There is a clear pattern between vaccination and testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) antibodies. In England, an estimated 93.6% of the adult population tested positive for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in the week beginning 12 July 2021, suggesting they had the infection in the past or have been vaccinated. In Wales, the estimated percentage was 93.2%, in Northern Ireland 90.7%, and in Scotland 92.5%. We provide 95% credible intervals in the main bulletin to indicate the uncertainty of each estimate.
