The final findings of one of the country’s largest studies into COVID-19 infections in England have been published by Imperial College London and Ipsos MORI. 

It provides a snapshot of the levels of infection in the general population between 6 and 22 January 2021. 

Infections have flattened, but they are at the highest level recorded by the study, with an indication of a decline at the end of the reporting period. 

Infection levels vary across the country, with the highest levels in London. 

Between 6 and 22 January, the national prevalence was 157 per 10,000 people infected.  In the South West, it was 87 per 10,000 people infected. 

Prevalence was highest nationally in 18 to 24 year olds.
