About the ZOE COVID Symptom Study
The ZOE COVID Symptom Study is run by researchers at King’s College London and collects data from users who have downloaded the app and are reporting symptoms through the app.
Please note that this app is not the NHS COVID-19 contact-tracing app or the NHS COVID app.
The ZOE COVID Symptom Study app (available for Android and IOS) is a major player in the fight against COVID-19, due to millions of UK users reporting on a daily basis.
How the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app works
Once a day the app reminds you to log your symptoms, if any and the data collected is shared on a daily basis with King’s College researchers and the NHS.
The reporting process takes less than a minute.
The app asks if you have ever had a COVID-19 test and if you answer No, you are asked to select from 2 options: “I feel physically normal’’ or ‘’I’m not feeling quite right.” That’s it – your report is complete.
If you report that you have had a COVID-19 test, the app will ask you for further details including the result. If you report a negative or positive test, this will be added to the daily total for Worthing and the UK.
If you log your COVID test result within the app, you will be presented with your list of tests for reference.
When you subsequently test negative or positive for COVID in Worthing and report this in the app, the number of COVID cases in Worthing and the UK daily total will adjust (on the next daily update of the COVID Symptom Study data), to show your contribution.
Download the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app
Download the app now and join the research. Your contribution will be invaluable and help win the fight against COVID-19.
