When the case doubles, Richmond gets the highest Covid rate in London

Richmond The highest rate in the capital was 418.9 per 100,000 in the last 7 days.

This is twice the rate reported a month ago and is the only London borough with current infection rates above the national average of 410 cases per 100,000 people.

Hounslow is the second highest rate in London at 409, Kingston is third at 332 and Sutton is fourth at 304.

In Richmond, the proportion of people under the age of 60 is four times that of people over the age of 60.

The Autonomous Region was one of the best in London for deploying vaccines to adults. Vaccine efficacy has opened up the possibility that it is beginning to decline in one of the first jabs.

Less than 7% of adult Londoners have booster jabs.

A total of 464,319 boosters were given in the capital, most recently 31,794 on Saturday. Boosters currently dominate the work of the vaccination team and currently account for more than three-quarters of Covid jabs.

In general, despite the lowest vaccination coverage in London, there was no sharp increase in cases reported elsewhere in the country. A total of 45,140 cases were reported across the UK on Sunday night. This is the highest number since July 20th.

However, especially in London, the slow development of jabs between the ages of 12 and 15 raises concerns about reported infection rates in middle school children.

In the capital, 11.4% of children aged 12 to 15 had jabs, compared to 15% in the UK as a whole. Barking and Dagenum accounted for the lowest percentage of the age group at 3.5%, followed by Newham and Lewisham (both 5.2%).

The highest incidence of Covid in London is in the 10-14 year old group, with 744 infections per 100,000 people in the last 7 days.
