In both the north west and south west, the growth rate of infections is at +1, showing the epidemic is speeding up in those areas.
Data released on Friday revealed the growth rate is now between minus 4% to minus 1%, compared with a rate of minus 5% to minus 1% per day, last week.
A growth rate between minus 1% to minus 4% means the number of new infections is shrinking by between 1% to 4% every day.
“However, we are starting to see early indications that these values may be increasing," the report said.
“This is not yet reflected in these estimates because the data used to calculate R and growth rate reflect the situation from a few weeks ago.”
Furthermore, there has been an increase in the number of people testing positive for coronavirus in England, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) says.
According to the ONS, between July 20 and 26 there were around 0.78 new Covid-19 infections for every 10,000 people in the community population in England.
This is equal to around 4,200 new cases per day.
This is up from an estimated 2,800 new cases a day in the previous week.
