NHS Digital publishes data on COVID-19 symptoms reported

NHS Digital has published a new dashboard that shows the total number of COVID-19 symptoms reported through NHS Pathways triages through 111 and 999, and online assessments in 111 online.

NHS Digital said the data is based on potential COVID-19 symptoms reported and is not a count of people, where a user could use the service multiple times.

The data shows the number of potential COVID-19 triages which stands at 243,547 at the time of writing and the online 111 assessment has been used almost 1.5 million times, both since 18th March 2020.

The data can be broken down by date and CCG for both 111 0nline assessments and NHS Pathways triages through 111 and 999. It can also be broken down by gender and age groups.

It’s aimed to inform the public and support the health and social care system in planning. It is released alongside a file of open data so others can also analyse the information.

You can view  the dashboard here.

The dashboard will be updated daily by NHS Digital.
