A new study from Public Health England looking at seropositivity in university students in England has been published. The study estimated that fewer than one in five students had COVID-19 antibodies by the end of the Autumn term. The study also estimated younger students and those living in halls of residence had greater odds of being seropositive whilst among students living in halls of residence with high numbers of reported cases almost half were estimated to have COVID-19 antibodies.
