The government has expressed concerns over eight states where the R factor continues to rise above the 1-mark, calling it a 'significant problem'. The R-value indicates the speed at which the coronavirus pandemic is spreading - even a slight increase in the R-value can indicate an impending upward trend again.

If the value is less than 1, it mathematically means that an infected person is spreading the virus to less than one.
