COVID Symptom Tracker: Predicting Symptomatic COVID-19 in the UK9 Apr, 2020
ZOE and King's College data science and machine learning teams have been working around the clock to create a machine learning model that uses Symptom Tracker data to predict COVID-19 in the UK. Based on data from the COVID Symptom Tracker app and the assumptions that we lay out below, we estimate that there are a total of 1.9m people in the UK with symptomatic COVID (aged 20-69 only) as of 1st April 2020.
Our estimate was calculated in 3 steps:
