Meanwhile the growth rate and R value of coronavirus transmission in the UK has changed slightly since last week – with early indications the value may be increasing.
Figures published on Friday by the Government Office for Science and the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) revealed the growth rate to be between minus 5% to 0, slightly up from between minus 4% to minus 1% last week.
The reproduction number, referred to as R, for the UK as a whole is between 0.8 to 1.
In England, the R is between 0.8 and 1, but Sage has indicated it is not confident that R is currently below one in the region.
The R value also appears to be close to 1 in all the other regions.
The estimates for R and growth rate are provided by the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling (SPI-M), a subgroup of Sage.
It said: “We are starting to see early indications that these values may be increasing.
“This is not yet reflected in these estimates because the data used to calculate R and growth rate reflect the situation from a few weeks ago.”
