According to the latest figures, the capital-wide seven-day Covid infection rate remained stable between December 20 and December 23, increasingly only slightly from 1,969.4 situations per 100,000 people to 2,024.8.

This contrasts with a nearly doubling in the case rate for the seven days up to December 14, when it was 1,072.8, and December 20.

An Evening Standard examination of the latest borough-by-borough data for the week to December 23 discloses that while Lambeth remained the capital’s worst-worst hit borough, the biggest percentage increases were recorded in north-west London.

In that week, situations increased by 66.8 per cent in Hillingdon to 4,399, while situations in nearby Hounslow increased by 65.1 per cent to 4,364.

situations remained highest in south London, with the capital’s five worst-hit boroughs all south of the river.

Lambeth’s total of 9,248 situations in that week were closely followed by Wandsworth, (8,858 situations), Southwark, (8,386 situations), Croydon, (8,381 situations), and Lewisham with 7,727 situations.
