London Covid cases by borough as capital hits 4 million jab doses

Infections have fallen so far in one borough, Southwark, that the rate was equivalent to less than one confirmed case a day per 100,000 people.

  • Haringey saw the biggest fall in cases, down 64.9 per cent in the week to April 8, compared to the previous week.
  • Bexley had a drop of 62.4 per cent, Southwark 61.8 per cent, Greenwich 57 per cent, Merton 56.5 per cent, Sutton 51 per cent, Kensington and Chelsea 50.7 per cent, and Lambeth 50 per cent.
  • The large percentage falls are partly due to cases being so low that a small drop in cases equates to a large percentage change.
  • Only two boroughs saw increases; Hackney and City of London up 28.6 and up Westminster 12.7 per cent.
  • Southwark had the lowest seven-day rate of 6.6 confirmed infections per 100,000 people a week, followed by Lambeth on 9.2.
  • The highest rate was Hillingdon at 38.8, followed by Hounslow on 34.6.
  • Fourteen boroughs had a rate between 10 and 20, and a further 14 between 20 and 30.
  • London’s seven-day rate was 19.5, down 32.5 per cent on the previous week.
  • The rate for Londoners aged 60 and over, who are more vulnerable to the virus but the majority of who have had the vaccine, was 10.5, compared to 21.3 for the younger age group.
  • In the week to April 12 in London, there were zero deaths, within 28 days of people testing positive for the virus, on four days, and a total of eight for the week, according to the latest figures though they could still change.
  • There were also zero such fatalities announced yesterday for the capital.

A further 19,293 second dose vaccines were announced yesterday to have been administered in the city, taking the total so far to 787,633.

An additional 4,127 first dose jabs were announced yesterday to have been administered in the capital, taking the total so far to 3,307,580.
