The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that the number of people with COVID-19 rose last week, but the rate of infection appears to have stabilised.

An estimated 618,700 people had coronavirus in community settings in England last week, the ONS has said.

The total equates to around one in 90 people, or 1.13% of the population, for the week between 25 and 31 October.

It represents a jump from 568,100 people, or 1.04% of the population, who were estimated to have COVID-19 in the period October 17 to 23.

But the ONS said new infections in England have stabilised at around 50,000 a day, suggesting a levelling off after a recent steep rise in cases.
