Government figures showing the number of Covid cases in the seven days up to Wednesday 20 January show a drop compared with the previous week. Hounslow remains the London borough with the joint highest figures and infection rates remain very high, said Kelly O’Neill, LB Hounslow’s Director of Public Health, but numbers are on a “very slow decline”.

In Chiswick, which is the least affected area of LB Hounslow, there were 188 new cases, compared with 239 the week before. In the week between 25 December 2020 and 1 January 2021 the number of new cases was 349.
