Coronavirus (Covid-19) Infection Survey, Northern Ireland: Weekly Report

The Department of Health today published the next in the series of weekly results from its COVID-19 Infection Survey (CIS). The findings set out in this report relate to modelled positivity estimates for NI for the week up to the 15th January 2022. The aims of the CIS are to estimate how many people have the infection and the number of new cases that occur over a given time as well as estimating how many people have developed antibodies to COVID-19. The survey over time will help track the extent of infection and transmission of COVID-19 among people in the community population (those in private residences).
