LONDON, Sept 4 (Reuters) - The reproduction "R" number of
COVID-19 in the United Kingdom remains between 0.9 and 1.1, the
government said on Friday, indicating that the rate of infection
is most likely either broadly stable or slightly growing.
The latest growth rate for the whole of the country is
between -1% and 2%, the government said, meaning the number of
new infections is somewhere between shrinking by 1% and growing
by 2% every day.
