England’s R number falls slightly to between 0.8 and 1.0


share close

England’s R number has fallen slightly to between 0.8 and 1.0, the latest government figures show.

Last week, the R value – or reproduction number – was between 0.9 and 1.1

The R number indicates the average number of people each COVID-positive person goes on to infect.

An R value between 0.8 and 1.0 means that, on average, every 10 people infected will infect between 8 and 10 other people.

The growth rate in England is now between -3% and -1% a day, meaning that the number of new infections is shrinking by between 1% and 3% each day.

This compares to a daily growth rate of -1% and +1% on the same day last week.
