The latest figures revealing the number of the R coronavirus in Essex have just been released. And nationally, the situation is rather grim.

Across England, the R-rate of the coronavirus, which is the number of people infected with the coronavirus, is currently between 1 and 1.2.

This means that for every 10 people infected with the coronavirus, between 10 and 12 other people will be infected with the virus.

But as we have seen from the imposition of local lockdowns in various parts of the UK, some parts of the country are doing much worse than others.

Figures released by NHS England break down the R rate for each region in England.

Essex is part of the east of England – which covers Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

For the East of England, the R rate is currently between 0.9 and 1.2.

Compared to the rest of England this is the second lowest rate, behind the Midlands and even with the South West.

Another figure released by the NHS is the growth rate of the coronavirus, which examines whether the number of cases in the country is increasing or decreasing.
