Coronavirus Live UK: 19 Covid cases reach new heights in London as Christmas travel hopes


He said the latest UK figures showed that as of Friday, 37 people had died within two days of testing positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number in the UK to 51,304.

The government says there are 2,301 more lab-confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK as of 9am on Friday.

A total of 3,999 cases were registered in the capital on Thursday, with an average of 156.5 cases per 100,000 population across the city over the past seven days.

Statistics reveal hotspots in East London boroughs like Havering and Newham, but much lower rates in areas like Kensington and Chelsea and Louisham. One expert said the increase was probably in line with the rising infection rate at the beginning of the month and showed why a second national lockdown was needed.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said naming them after the deaths of more than 200 health workers following the Covid-19 deal was “devastating”.

Mr Khan said: “My heart goes out to all of their family, friends and colleagues.

“We owe them all our gratitude for their selfless sacrifice, but lessons must be learned so that our health and care workers can safely do what they need to do to protect Londoners.”
