Average cases per day have decreased to around 170 per day. Test positivity in the community has continued to decrease to around 10% which remains high.

When full test data is available, the infection rate per 100,000 population is likely to be around 280 for the last 7 days.

This is around 45% lower than the 510 per 100,000 population seen in the previous week.

Hospital admissions have reduced slightly to around 29 per day. There remain around 450 people in the Royal Free with COVID 19 with over 100 on Mechanical Ventilation.

All age groups and ethnicities are seeing a decrease in cases, although in the youngest and oldest age bands the rate of decrease is slower than in other age bands.

In care home settings, there has been 32 new cases in residents and 43 cases in staff*.

Brunswick Park, Burnt Oak, Childs Hill, Colindale, East Barnet & West Hendon wards seem to be consistently around or above the Barnet average rate per 100,000
population.

The rate per 100,000 population in Barnet is now similar to the London rate, which is around 315 per 100,000 population.
