To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the rate of infection with covid-19 is for (a) young people aged 11-17 and (b) adults over 18 years old in the UK.

R is not usually a useful measure on its own and needs to be considered alongside the number of new cases. More information can be found at the following link:
