England’s R number has jumped to between 1.2 and 1.4, according to new figures.

R represents the average number of people each person with COVID-19 goes on to infect.

Last week, the estimated R number was between 1 and 1.2 in England.

An outbreak can grow exponentially when the figure is above 1. When it is below 1, it means the epidemic is shrinking.
