COVID-19 and Respiratory Infections Survey (CRIS)
The new COVID-19 and Respiratory Infections Survey (CRIS) aims to understand and manage COVID-19 and other respiratory infections. The data from the study are important in helping to understand:
- the impact of COVID-19, long COVID and other respiratory infections on the lives of individuals, the community and on health services and how they are changing
- potential pressures to help support the NHS and other services to prepare for future stressors, acting as an early warning system
A selection of COVID-19 Infection Survey participants will be invited by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to join the study, which is separate from the COVID-19 Infection Survey - Oxford University is not involved in CRIS. More information is available here.

A study led by Genomics England is trying to find out whether there are genetic factors that mean that some people experience severe symptoms of COVID-19 whilst others experience only mild symptoms. If you have a positive swab test, you can register for this yourself on https://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/covid-19/. You can also join this study if your blood test is positive for antibodies to COVID-19.

A cough is one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.
When we have a cough, often our voice changes as well. Recordings of people’s voices and coughing when they have and don’t have COVID-19 suggests that it might be possible to tell if someone is likely to have COVID-19 just from how their voice sounds. If this worked on large numbers of people, this could be a quick and affordable way to try to find out who has COVID-19 alongside mass testing. You can read more about this study here and you can sign up here (you will need your swab barcode from your most recent visit).
