COVID Symptom Study


14 April 2021

Residents encouraged to use the COVID Symptom Study app to support vital research.

The COVID Symptom Study application is a not-for-profit initiative that launched in March 2020 to support vital COVID-19 research. The app was created by doctors and scientists working in partnership with the health science company ZOE. Its scientific analysis is provided by the University King’s College London and it is supported by the Department of Health and Social Care England. It has over 4 million contributors globally and is the world’s largest ongoing study of COVID-19.

By downloading and using the app, you are helping and contributing to advance vital research on COVID-19. All you need to do is take one minute each day to self-report your symptoms, even if you feel fine. Your data will be used to track COVID infections and to gain vital research of the different symptoms the virus causes in people.

Your data is protected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and will only be used for health research.

Download the app by searching for COVID Symptom Study on your phone’s App Store. For more information visit COVID Symptom Study.
