LOndon is facing a Covid-19 crisis as Christmas approaches, cases having almost doubled in a week in some districts, today reveal shock figures.

They show that the seven-day infection rate climbs to 270.5 new confirmed cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants in the capital, England’s worst region, as hot spots multiply in the city.
The 11 largest increases have all occurred outside of north-east London, although this hard-hit area has four boroughs with a seven-day rate above 400, with Havering over 540.
On the first day that the capital comes under strict Level 3 restrictions, the numbers show:
  • Richmond saw the number of cases soar 95.2% in the week ending December 10, compared to the previous week, albeit low
  • Enfield was hit by a jump of 89.5%, Lewisham 82.8% and Hammersmith and Fulham 81.8%
  • Southwark grew 76.9%, Sutton 71.8% and Lambeth 70.1%
  • In Wandsworth the increase was 68.7%, Islington 67.6%, Bromley 66.2% and Camden 60.7%
  • Eight other boroughs recorded increases of more than 50% and seven others of more than 40%
  • The seven-day rate per 100,000 climbed to 544.8 in Havering, 443.9 in Redbridge, 441 in Barking and Dagenham and 409.4 in Waltham Forest
  • Weekly case numbers are expected to rise further and the trend is for hospital admissions of Covid patients to follow outbreaks by a few weeks. In the week before December 11, 1,493 coronavirus patients were admitted to hospitals in the capital
Many restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes had ordered supplies ahead of what many expected to be the busiest time of the year before Christmas.
Now they can only offer take-out.
