Infection rates levelling off in England and Scotland


Coronavirus infection rates are levelling off in England and Scotland and decreasing in Wales and Northern Ireland, latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests.

The R number for the UK continues to fall and is now between 1 and 1.1.
