    Coronavirus infection 'R' rate in UK creeps up.

    The infection rate in the UK has gone up and is close to the point where the virus starts spreading rapidly, government scientific advice says. The so-called "R-number" is now between 0.7 and 1.0 - it needs to be kept below one in order to stay in control. The rise in the figures is thought to be driven by the virus spreading in care homes and hospitals. The effect of the changes to lockdown announced by the prime minister on Sunday is still unknown.

     

    Has this R number being around a while? Never heard of it before. They haven't made it up to counter our Z number score? I've been telling everyone about.
