England’s Covid R number has risen and is now between 0.9 and 1.2, according to the latest government figures.

Last week it was estimated to between 0.8 and 1.0.

If R is greater than 1 the epidemic is generally seen to be growing; if R is less than 1 the epidemic is shrinking.

Here’s what the R rate is in each region of England:

East of England – 0.9 to 1.2 (up from 0.8 to 1.1)

London – 0.9 to 1.1 (up from 0.8 to 1.0)
