Only 22 percent of people who tested positive for the coronavirus indicated having symptoms on the day of the test, according to a report issued Tuesday by U.K.’s Office of National Statistics.

The office’s statistics showed more people having the disease and spreading it without their knowledge, BBC reported. Health and social care workers appeared to be more likely to test positive for the affliction.

The U.K. currently has roughly 288,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, including more than 44,000 deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
