The daily COVID-19 dashboard for the United Kingdom does not currently include reinfections for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. For these nations, those who test positive more than once are recorded once at the time of their first test. Work is ongoing to allow the inclusion of data on re-infections on the dashboard in the near future.
