Going abroad does not increase the risk of becoming Covid-19, the latest official information released.
A survey by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found that the rate of infection among foreign travelers over the past 30 days has been roughly the same for those staying in the UK.
Previous iterations of long-term research to keep an eye on Kovid’s population have found that the positive rate is higher among foreign travelers.
Between September 25 and October 7, only 3 percent of participants traveled abroad, and 0.48 percent of those who said they had not done so in the last 30 days tested positive compared to those who traveled.
Experts say this means that there is “no more difference” in the effectiveness of risk between the two groups.
There are currently eighty-five destinations on the public “travel corridor” list, meaning segregation is not required upon return.
In the ONS survey, those who tested positive for Covid-19 revealed “characteristics” and found that the positive rate was higher in urban areas of England than in rural areas.
It was found that 34 percent of the positive tests had no symptoms when tested
Only 32 percent of those who tested positive had a cough, fever, or loss of taste and smell at the time of the test, although these are among the three officially recognized symptoms.
Katherine Kent, co-head of analysis at the Covid-19 infection survey, said: “The analysis now shows that there is no difference between the rate of infection between those traveling abroad and those who have settled down.”
“Looking back over the entire duration of the survey, we can still see that a positive percentage of people in their positive test report any symptoms during their test, even though it increased less than in June and less than in July.”
