It is estimated by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) that one in 35 people in the East of England were infected with coronavirus on 18 June compared to one in 50 the week before. Across England it was estimated that 1 person in 40 was infected during the week ending 18 June.

The most recent estimated R rate for the region was issued on 24 June 2022. It measures how fast the pandemic spreading, and is between 1.1 and 1.4 in the East of England. The previous issued R rate at the end of May was between 0.7 and 0.9. The current rate means that every 10 people with Covid-19 will pass it on to between 11 and 14 others.

The growth rate in cases is estimated to be between +1% to +5% in the region. That means that the number of new infections is increasing by up to 5% every day.

The UK Health Security Agency says the R rate estimates represent the transmission of COVID-19, two to three weeks ago due to the time delay between someone being infected, developing symptoms, and needing healthcare.
