This revealed about 11 percent tested positive for antibodies in London in early April – indicating they had bugs and recovered.

In contrast, only six percent of those in their 60s have it antibody against coronavirus, a difference of more than half.

Officials said the finding was “unexpected”, mainly because the majority was searching NHS help is old.

But experts claim younger Britons are the least likely to follow social distance and therefore not surprisingly they have the highest risk of capturing Covid.

The results are based on blood tests taken from thousands across the country to measure how many Britons suffer from the disease.

PHE immunology chief Mary Ramsay said people aged between 17-29 were “the most commonly infected group” in the capital, and exposure “decreased with age”, according to the Journal of Health Services.

Speaking at a diagnostic conference, he said: “This is the opposite of what we see for disease.

“We see disease in dominant older adults, whereas with infections we seem to see it in younger adults.

“This is a very interesting and very unexpected finding. I think even modelers find that infection rates seem to be higher in young adults. “

He said a similar pattern in other regions.

Paul Hunter, Professor of Medicine at the UAE, said: “Young people are the most likely to socialize and the least likely to hold on social distance guidelines.

“So from that point of view, it is not surprising.

“What this shows is that people in their 20s are more likely to take it virus, but that does not necessarily prove that they continue.

“Although you can assume that they are more likely to get along with people their age, it might be a source of infection.

“These preliminary data illustrate the reality of what is happening on the ground.

“In London it showed on April 12 that around 11 percent of 17 to 29 years had infections, compared to seven percent of those aged 60 to 70 – so the difference was more than half.”

A PHE spokesman said the findings came from “preliminary research” and had to be “treated with caution”.
