Southwark, Lambeth and Bexley each saw one death linked to Covid-19, while Bromley had two and Lewisham had three. There were no deaths in Greenwich.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson and medical experts have called on people to come forward to get their booster shots as protection against the first two wanes over time.
