Please could you provide me with evidence of the isolation of SARS Cov 2 virus genome in full.
Thank you for your request.
The COVID-19 Infection Survey is a household survey that estimates the number of people testing positive for infection and for antibodies in the UK. Our statistics refer to the number of current COVID-19 infections within the population living in private residential households. We exclude those in hospitals, care homes and/or other communal establishments. In communal establishments, rates of COVID-19 infection are likely to be different.
We do not hold data on the isolation of the COVID-19 virus.
Your request may be better placed with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA). They can be contacted via email at email@example.com or via FOI email at InformationRights@UKHSA.gov.uk.
Further information and an overview of data about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the Office for National Statistic (ONS) and other sources can be found in our Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest insights tool.
