The incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) for non-hospitalised patients with coronavirus disease-2019 infection has not been very widely studied. 13 019 persons with a positive SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid amplification test were identified. In total, 447 (0. 2%) VTEs were identified in the study population, 293 (66%) of these were pulmonary embolisms. A positive SARS-CoV-2 test did not increase the risk for VTE in the univariate analysis (odds ratio (OR): 1. 0, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0. 69-1. 4) or multivariable analysis (OR: 1. 36, 95% CI: 0. 93-1. 97).
