HCCS Youtube channel launches with testing guidelines for Covid 19

Updated: Apr 13


A report just released shows that less than 25% of people in the UK showing Covid symptoms are requesting a test, with only half say they are fully self-isolating after symptoms develop. Legal requirement means that UK residents must self-isolate for 10 days if they have Covid, starting from the onset of symptoms or, if no symptoms, from the day of a positive test result.

Yet in a recent study, responses from the Covid-19 (Corsair) study, created by researchers from institutions including King’s College London, Public Health England and University College London and published in the BMJ, suggests that people are not following the guidelines.


In the survey, that took place between 25 and 27 January 2021, 50.8% of participants identified symptoms including a cough, high temperature or fever, and loss of sense of smell or taste as signs of Covid, yet only 22.2% of those with Covid symptoms in the past seven days said they had requested a test.


Only 51.8% of those with recent Covid symptoms, who had not tested negative, said they fully adhered to self-isolation – meaning they did not leave home in the first 10 days after their symptoms began. Yet 71% of respondents said they intended to stick to self-isolation guidelines.


Whilst infections have lowered since lockdown, the figures of rates of infection are levelling off. With this in mind, Hackney Chinese community Services has launched our Hackney Chinese Youtube channel, with 3 important videos about how and when to get tested for Covid 19.


It is important to support your family and winder community if you believe you have been infected Covid 19. You can visit our youtube channel which has the videos in Mandarin, Cantonese and English that help explain how to get tested here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiFetbfSoS4ApAuUh59U8_A/featured
