Ealing’s Covid-19 rate remains the highest in London

This is an extract from Eric Leach’s regular Covid-19 newsletter:

‘In the period 17 October to 23 October 2020 the Covid-19 infection rate per 100,000 people in Ealing was 220.3. Although the highest in London this figure must be put into a national perspective. The highest rates of infection are: Blackburn with Darwen, 785.6, Rossendale, 675.7 and Oldham, 625.4.  At the lowest infection rates are the Isle of Wight, Cornwall and Somerset all with under 50 cases/100,000 people.

However the rates in specific neighbourhoods in Ealing show a wide variation. Here is just a sample of what I dug out of the Government’s data mine:

Southall West: 340

Northolt East: 313

Norwood Green: 286.3

Southall Park: 244.1

Ealing Broadway: 225.1

Acton Central: 181.9

Elthorne Park: 155.4

Cuckoo Park, Hanwell: 151.2

West Ealing: 132.3′
