Written by on 30 October 2020

The UK’s coronavirus reproduction number has edged down slightly from 1.2-1.4 to 1.1-1.3, according to the latest figures.

The number has been confirmed by the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE).

The R number is one of many indicators scientists use to determine how quickly COVID-19 the virus is spreading.

Reproduction rate means the average number of people each person with coronavirus goes on to infect.
