The primary significance of this is that the lower end of the estimate range has fallen below a critical level for the first time in months.

The new estimate shows that 10 infected people infect an average of 9-11 other people, which means that if the two extremes in the estimate range are correct, the rate of spread of the coronavirus epidemic in England will slow. .

According to SAGE’s calculation methodology, an R of 0.9 to 1.1 means the number of novel coronavirus infections in England could range from a decrease of 2 per cent to an increase of 2 per cent each day.

Within the UK average, the situation in London is the best: SAGE has measured an R-score of 0.8-1.1 over the past week. (MTI)
