LONDON – England’s COVID-19 weekly reproduction “R” number was unchanged between 0.9 and 1.1, government estimates showed on Friday.

An R number between 0.9 and 1.1 means that for every 10 people infected, they will on average infect between 9 and 11 other people.

The estimated daily growth of infections also remained between -1% and +1%, the same as the previous week’s figures.
