LONDON (Reuters) - The prevalence of COVID-19 infections in England has fallen again, with 1 in 270 people infected in the week ending March 6, the Office for National Statistics said on Friday.

That is down from 1 in 220 people estimated to have coronavirus in the previous week's ONS Infection Survey, a widely watched estimate of community prevalence of COVID-19 infections.
