Coronavirus: Majority testing positive have no symptoms
Only 22% of people testing positive for coronavirus reported having symptoms on the day of their test, according to the Office for National Statistics. People from ethnic minority backgrounds were more likely to have a positive antibody test, suggesting a past infection. White people were the least likely proportionally to test positive for antibodies. Some people testing positive without symptoms might go on to develop symptoms, or they may have already had symptoms and cleared them. While 22% in the study reported symptoms on the day, a larger group - a third of people testing positive for coronavirus - reported having symptoms either on the day of their test or at their previous or subsequent test.
