London Covid cases by borough revealed as one million under-55s get coronavirus vaccine

[ad_1]

More than a million Covid-19 jabs have been administered to Londoners aged under 55, official figures reveal today.

They show that by March 14, 962,225 people in the capital in this age group had received a first dose, and 54,907 a second vaccination.

In the following three days, a further 162,020 jabs have been administered in the city.

There is no age breakdown for these figures but many of them will have been under 55 as there has been a surge in people in this age group getting the jab.

The highest proportion of London’s population to have had a first dose Covid inoculation is the 75 to 79-year-old age group at 89.7 per cent, followed by 70 to 74 at 89.2 per cent, 65 to 69 at 85 per cent, 80+ at 84 per cent, and 60 to 64 at 80.3 per cent.

Then there is a big drop to the 55 to 59 category at 59.6 per cent.

The figure is 18.7 per cent for the under 55s, which is a far bigger age group and includes many health and care workers, as well as individuals aged 16 and over with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality from Covid-19.

Official figures also showed:

  • A new London low in the seven-day Covid rate as the second wave declines with Hackney seeing 16.5 confirmed new infections per 100,000 people in the week to March 13.
  • Southwark’s rate was 19.8, and five more boroughs were below 30; Camden, Enfield, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, and Lewisham.
  • The highest rate was in Hillingdon at 78.5, followed by Ealing on 70.8.
  • This week’s figures need to be treated with additional 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 further 535 confirmed cases were announced for London yesterday.
  • The capital’s seven-day rate nudged down to 39.1 confirmed new infections per 100,000 in the week to March 13, or a total of 3,504 cases.

The real number of cases in significantly higher than the confirmed totals, partly because so many people have the disease asymptomatically.
