Every week we update residents on the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the borough. The latest figures (14 to 20 January) show there were 426 cases. This is an decrease on last week's figure (7 to 13 January) of 873 cases.
The rate per 100,000 for the period 10 to 16 January for Kensington and Chelsea was 450.3 per 100,000. The rate for London over the same period is 678.7 per 100,000 and for England is 484 per 100,000. The rate per 100,000 figures are available over a rolling seven day period. There is a delay of a few days as figures are collated and checked.
The situation in Kensington and Chelsea, and the rest of the country, is currently seeing increasing cases and we need residents to carry on following the Government’s advice.
The most important thing we can all do to prevent the spread of the virus is to stay at home. Where we need to leave home, please remember the basics:
- Wash your hands more often than usual for 20 seconds, especially as soon as you get home
- If you can, cover your mouth and nose when in places where it’s hard to stay away from other people you do not normally meet
- Keep your distance - stay at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from anyone you do not live with (or anyone not in your support bubble)
- Please visit GOV.UK to find out what you can and cannot do.
Also remember that if you have Coronavirus symptoms you should self-isolate and get a test as soon as possible.
