What is positive percentage?

Based on Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, percent positive is exactly what it sounds like: percent of all coronavirus tests done that are actually positive, or: (tests positive) / (total tests) x 100%. Percent positive (sometimes called “positive percentage” or “positive rate”) helps public health officials answer questions such as:

  • What is the current level of community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus)?
  • Are we testing enough people who are infected?

The positive percentage will be high if the number of positive tests is too high or if the total number of tests is too low. A higher percentage of positives indicates higher transmission, and there are more people with coronavirus in the community who have not been tested, Johns Hopkins shared.
