London cases by borough revealed as infection rates tumble below 20 in 100,000 in some areas

[ad_1]

Covid-19 cases have fallen so far in London that two boroughs saw a seven-day rate below 20 confirmed new infections per 100,000 people a week, official figures reveal today.

They also show that more than 2.6 million Londoners have had a first dose Covid vaccine.

In Hackney and the City of London, the seven-day rate dropped to 17.9 in the week to March 12, the lowest so far since the second wave started declining.

In Southwark the rate was down to 19.8.

In Lewisham the rate dipped below 20 earlier this month but has now risen to 28.4.

This week’s figures, though, need to be treated with particular caution as the number of positive results is being pushed up by the mass testing for the return to schools, as well as surge testing.

A number of boroughs, with a proportionally higher percentage of families with dependent children, have seen cases rise.

London’s seven-day rate was 39.4 in the week to March 12, unchanged from a day earlier, and down 7.2 per cent on the previous week, compared to a fall of 37.3 per cent as of March 2.

  • A further 542 cases were announced for London yesterday.
  • Hackney and the City of London saw the biggest fall in confirmed cases, down 44.1 per cent in the week to March 12, followed by Southwark down 43.2 per cent, both from a lowish base, and then Barking and Dagenham down 22.1 per cent.
  • The biggest rise was in Lewisham up 42.6 per cent, followed by Bromley 31.8 per cent, both from a lowish base, followed by Kingston up 25.3 per cent.
  • Seven boroughs saw a seven-day rate below 30 including Islington, Camden, Enfield, Kensington and Chelsea and Lewisham.
  • The highest rate was in Hillingdon on 78.2, followed by Ealing on 71.7.
  • The real number of cases is higher than the confirmed total, partly because so many people have the virus asymptomatically.
  • A further 44,430 first dose vaccinations were announced yesterday to have been administered in London, taking the total so far to 2,607,509.
  • A further 8,705 second dose vaccinations were announced yesterday to have been administered in the city, taking the total so far to 163,998.
  • The detailed figures for London show:
  • In Hackney and the City of London, there were 52 cases in the week to March 12, down 41 (44.1%) with a seven-day rate of 17.9.
