UK COVID-19 R rate edges up to 1.2-1.5 as infections rise

Fri, 25th Sep 2020 13:38

LONDON, Sept 25 (Reuters) - The reproduction "R" number of
COVID-19 infections in the United Kingdom has risen to a range
of 1.2-1.5 from last week's figure of 1.1 to 1.4, the government
said on Friday.

"An R number between 1.2 and 1.5 means that on average every
10 people infected will infect between 12 and 15 other people,"
the government said, adding that the number of new infections
was growing by 4% to 8% each day.
