Covid testing of students finds few positive cases

The mass Covid testing of students before Christmas has so far found 0.2% testing positive at one of the universities taking part.

The University of Portsmouth is reporting “very low numbers” of positive cases from its Covid testing.

“We are seeing fewer than two per day on average at present,” said vice-chancellor Graham Galbraith.

He criticised a “blame culture” in which students had been accused of spreading infections.

“Prevalence in students is now very low indeed,” said Prof Galbraith.

Edge Hill University in Lancashire says it has so far found zero positive cases in its end-of-term testing.
