Enfield and Haringey have seen sharp falls in their coronavirus infection rates in the weeks since a strict lockdown was imposed.

The Covid-19 infection rate in Enfield was 580.3 new cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to January 20 – down 53 per cent from the rate of 1,224 recorded in the week to January 8.

In Haringey, the rate was 548.7 cases per 100,000 – a 48 per cent drop compared to the January 8 figure.

Both boroughs also saw week-on-week declines in their infection rates of almost 30 per cent.

Despite the downward trends, their rates were higher than the infection rate for the UK as a whole, which was 390.5 cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to January 20.

Enfield has the 12th highest infection rate in London and Haringey has the 15th highest, based on the most recent data.

It comes after England was placed under a strict lockdown on January 5, which saw schools, non-essential retail, leisure and entertainment venues closed, while people were told they could only leave their homes for limited reasons.

The Government confirmed on Monday that the current lockdown arrangements will be reviewed on February 15.

Brimsdown Avenue was the worst-hit part of Enfield in the seven days to January 20 with 92 cases, according to a Government map of ‘middle layer super output areas’.

Other parts of Enfield with relatively high case numbers were Enfield Wash (85 cases), Enfield Lock (80) and Southbury East (80).

The areas with the lowest case numbers were Grange Park (24) and World’s End (27).

In Haringey, Tottenham Green West was the worst-affected area, with 71 cases. White Hart Lane (64 cases) and South Tottenham (64) were also badly hit.

The lowest case numbers were in Highgate Wood (10) and Crouch End West (15).

The latest infection rate data is based on figures from Public Health England published on the Government’s online coronavirus dashboard. It is subject to slight variations, as the figures are continually updated.
