In these reports, data includes the reproductive rate, or we can say it is the R rate, which generally refers to the number of people who can be infected through the infected person. During the pandemic’s peak, the R range and growth rate for the UK were published every week and every two weeks since April this year.

In May 2020, data was published for the whole UK, while after April 2021, it was published only for England. Now following the detailed review and the next detailed release date will publish on Covid on January 6, as informed by the UKHSA Epidemiology Modelling Review Group(EMRG). “at the time of pandemic, growth rate and R value was used to inform public health issues and take Government decisions.

However, we still monitored the different possible indicators; this data publication is no more relevent or necessary”. Informed by the UK government officials.
