Zoe Covid study - your chance to contribute to help understand the epidemic

Some people in the village have already signed to the Zoe Covid research project where people across the country report how they feel, if they have been tested for Covid and more recently if they have been vaccinated. The idea is to report daily even if you are feeling well.  The study is a joint effort between health science company, Zoe and King's College London. The data is shared with the NHS to help understand Covid. This study collects a real time view of how COVID is spreading and where people are getting tested and vaccinated rather than measuring after the event the number of people being hospitalised or dying.

You can read a weekly roundup here, and if you feel inclined sign up for the study to share your own data to add to the picture. The roundup includes useful information such as 'How to look after yourself if you have Covid'.

Thank you I will sign up for this.  Monday - by surprise - I was offered my VAC app at Wincanton Community Hospital.  Yesterday evening I attended and I could not fault the well organised 'operation'. 

A few day before I had a to take part in a 'Covid-19 in-home antibody testing research study.  I now await my 'test kit'.  I now need to find out 'if or when' O proceed with this.
