Updated preprint: linking COVID-19 tests to UK Biobank

My bugbank colleagues and I have posted a substantially revised preprint describing our work linking COVID-19 test results between Public Health England's microbiology database SGSS and UK Biobank, the first data from which were released on Friday.

I recommend reading this short paper for anyone interpreting these test results, because it describes the scientific rationale, the data limitations, and the basic epidemiological characteristics of the COVID-19 positive UK Biobank cohort.
