Statistics are produced and released in line with the principles set out in the Code of Practice for Statistics, ensuring high quality and accessibility.
The content and frequency of reporting on COVID-19, such as the ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK’ dashboard published on GOV.UK, is kept under review. The dashboard includes local data on testing, cases, vaccination, hospitalisation and deaths. The Office for National Statistics’ (ONS) Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey is the Government’s community surveillance programme. The ONS publishes weekly insights on infections across the United Kingdom, which includes sub-regional estimates of the proportion of people testing positive for COVID-19.
