Make It Count: citizen science to understand coronavirus

17% of our antibody tests have been positive - but we can tell you so much more.

Make it count is a citizen-science project to capture data on coronavirus tests from around the UK. Thousands of us have already been tested and we all have our own "story" to tell through our data. Together, these stories will build up a picture of coronavirus around the UK which can help us to understand:

  • how widespread infection with coronavirus has been
  • if certain groups of people are more likely to have been infected
  • how good at picking up past infection the antibody tests are
  • how long coronavirus antibodies might last for

We need you to tell us few details about yourself, your test results and your COVID-19 story, It will take less than 5 minutes. We don't ask for any information that could identify you. All questions are optional.

We're going to add your story to everyone else's to build up a picture of coronavirus around the UK. We'll share this anonymous data on our website for everyone to see and understand more about coronavirus. We will also make this data available to universities and the government to help coronavirus research. You can read more about how we look after your data in our privacy policy.
