Cases definition to include multiple infection episodes from 31 January 2022
From 31 January 2022, UKHSA will move all COVID-19 case reporting in England to use a new episode-based definition which includes possible reinfections.
On the dashboard, this means:
cases in England by report date will change to the new definition of an episode of infection
historical numbers by report date will not be revised, so there will be a step increase in the cumulative numbers of cases on that date
specimen date metrics will be revised back to the beginning of the pandemic.
the same metric names will still be used
new metrics will show first episodes of infection (equivalent to the current case definition) and episodes of reinfection, shown by specimen date only.
UKHSA is working with the devolved administrations to align definitions across the UK.
