LONDON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - The UK's COVID-19 reproduction
"R" number edged up to 1.3-1.5 from 1.2-1.5, government
scientists said on Friday, meaning on average every 10 people
infected will infect between 13 and 15 others.
However, the estimated daily growth rate of the disease was
+4% to +7%, compared to +4% to +9%, implying the growth in
infections may be slowing.
