Coronavirus infection rates in Enfield and Haringey remained low as the Government gave the go-ahead to a further stage of lockdown easing.

The rates in both boroughs were below 20 new cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to May 5 – around two months after restrictions began to be lifted.

Speaking on Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed stage three of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown will go ahead as planned on May 17.

It means indoor mixing and overnight stays in groups of up to six people or two households will be allowed, while hotels and indoor entertainment venues can reopen their doors.

The infection rate in Enfield was down 14 per cent on the previous seven-day figure, to 12 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people.

In Haringey, the figure was 16 cases per 100,000 people.

The Government publishes a map showing cases in regions known as middle layer super output areas – parts of boroughs that have similar populations.

Updated daily, the map shows that in the seven days to May 5, almost all parts of Enfield saw fewer than three cases of Covid-19 – the lowest figure available.

The only exceptions were Chase Farm and The Ridgeway and Bury Street West and Village Road, with four cases each, and Enfield Town North, Edmonton Green and Enfield Town South and Bush Hill Park, which each had three cases.

Rates were also close to zero in most parts of Haringey, according to the latest data.

Muswell Hill North, with six cases, was the worst-affected area. Four cases were recorded in Downhills Park and three in Highgate Wood. The rest of the borough saw fewer than three cases.
