The Covid-19 “R” rate has risen to between 0.9 and 1.1, government scientists have confirmed. 

The numbers suggest there is a risk that the overall coronavirus epidemic in the UK is growing, the Science and the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) has said. 

The latest growth rate for the whole of the UK is between -3% to +1%, a slight change from between -4% to -1% last week.

The growth rate of coronavirus transmission reflects how quickly the number of infections is changing day by day.
