Number of confirmed London coronavirus cases passes 50

The number of people diagnosed with the coronavirus (COVID-19) in London boroughs has reached 50, according to a table of confirmed cases in London local authority areas published by Public Health England (PHE) yesterday.

The largest number, eight, have been located in Kensington & Chelsea, followed by five in Ealing and four in Barnet.

Three cases have confirmed in Wandsworth, Westminster, Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham, Hounslow and Brent, two in Hackney, Camden and Hammersmith & Fulham, and one in Bromley, Harrow, Hillingdon, Merton, Tower Hamlets and Redbridge.

Thirteen boroughs have yet to confirm a case. A single case was identified last week in the City of London, which is not included in the PHE table.

The geographical distribution of the 19 boroughs where cases have been found splits evenly between Inner (nine) and Outer boroughs (10). Eleven found have located in the two core Central boroughs of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea, while the two boroughs with the second and third highest individual totals, Barnet and Ealing, are in Outer London.
