Frequently Asked Questions – Health Topics

How does testing reduce the spread of the virus?

Testing enables individuals with severe Covid-19 symptoms to seek appropriate treatment and to avoid contaminating hospitals if admitted.

Testing combined with contact tracing and isolation (called Test and Protect in Scotland) is the most effective way of controlling virus spread. It has been proven to work in those countries that have managed to control the disease. To be effective, Test and Protect requires individuals with any one of the established coronavirus symptoms (fever, continuous cough or loss of taste/smell) to immediately self-isolate with their families.

What is the percentage of asymptomatic cases in positive tests?

The majority of people who test positive for novel coronavirus infection never display symptoms – they are “asymptomatic”. In a study of the English population, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimated that 60-80% of those who tested positive for coronavirus were asymptomatic over the course of the study. However it is important to note that there is still a scientific debate about how effectively asymptomatic people can transmit the virus to others or whether mild signs of Covid-19 were missed in people labeled asymptomatic.
