Coronavirus infection rates are continuing to rise across the capital, with all but 10 boroughs seeing an increase on last week’s figures.

Enfield has seen its number of weekly cases more than double in the past week, from 44 reported on September 3 to 108 on September 10 – an increase of more than 145 per cent.

Ealing has seen cases rise by three-quarters (79. per cent) – from 54 cases to 95, while boroughs including Southwark, Hackney, Islington and the City of London have all seen infections surge by more than a quarter.

Redbridge remains the worst-hit local authority – recording 108 new Covid-19 cases at a rate of 35.4 per 100,000, up from 81 new cases the previous week.

Nine boroughs have confirmed small decreases in weekly cases, while Sutton and Greenwich have seen significant drops in infections – by more than 42 per cent and 31 per cent respectively.

Infection rates in 21 boroughs are now above the Government’s threshold for imposing quarantine restrictions on holidaymakers returning to the UK from abroad – with 20 per 100,000 considered high risk.

Redbridge, Hounslow, Newham, Havering and Enfield are all seeing infection rates of more than 30 per 100,000.
