The number of new COVID-19 cases in England more than doubled in a week at the end of September, according to latest estimates from the ONS.

There were an average of 17,200 new cases per day in private households between 25 September and 1 October – compared with 8,400 new cases per day the previous week from 18-24 September.

The Office for National Statistics said there has been a “marked increase” in the rate of new infections over the last six weeks.

The figures do not include people staying in other settings such as hospitals and care homes.
