Sharp falls in the seven-day coronavirus infection rates in Enfield and Haringey have taken them below the UK average.

The number of new Covid-19 cases in Enfield was 123 per 100,000 people during the seven days to February 10 – down 43 per cent on the previous seven-day figure.

In Haringey, the infection rate fell by 44 per cent to 112 cases per 100,000 people during the same period.

The latest declines saw the boroughs’ rates drop below the UK-wide figure of 150 new Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people and the London average of 138 cases per 100,000 people.

It is a sharp contrast to the figures seen at the start of the year, when both had infection rates above 1,000 cases per 100,000 people during the first week in January.

Upper Edmonton West was the worst-hit part of Enfield during the week to February 10, with 27 new cases, according to a Government map of “middle layer super output areas”.

Upper Edmonton East and Meridian Water (19 cases) and Bowes (18 cases) saw relatively high numbers.

Brimsdown and Ponders End, Chase and Crews Hill and World’s End all saw the lowest numbers of new cases, with fewer than three in each area.

The worst-hit part of Haringey was Harringay Ladder North, with 16 new cases of Covid-19. Tottenham Lea Valley (14 cases) and Roundway (14 cases) also saw relatively high numbers.

Alexandra Park and Highgate Wood recorded the lowest rates, with fewer than three new cases each.

With the vaccine rollout continuing, the Government has pledged to set out a roadmap out of the current lockdown on Monday, February 22.

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.
