Enfield and Haringey areas where Covid cases almost at zero

Parts of Enfield and Haringey have seen Covid-19 cases drop to almost zero as infection rates took another tumble.

The latest data shows 15 areas in the boroughs where fewer than three new cases of the virus were recorded in the week to February 24 – the lowest numbers provided by the Government

Despite the falling rates, council leaders have urged people to continue following public health guidelines to stop cases rising again.

The Covid-19 infection rate in Enfield dropped by 21 per cent to 57 new cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to February 24. In Haringey, it was down by 23 per cent to 62 cases per 100,000.

According to a Government map of middle layer super output areas – parts of the borough with similar populations – the areas of Enfield with fewer than three cases were:

  • Southgate Green
  • Chase Side
  • Turkey Street
  • Carterhatch and Forty Hall
  • Osidge

Bowes, with 14 cases of Covid-19, and Tatem Park, with 13, were the worst hit by the virus.

The parts of Haringey with fewer than three cases were:

  • Wood Green North
  • Bounds Green
  • Alexandra Park
  • Highgate Wood
  • Crouch End West
  • Hornsey Vale
  • Stroud Green
  • Harringay Ladder South
  • Harringay East
  • Bruce Grove South

The worst-affected areas were West Green and St Ann’s, with 15 cases of the virus, and Noel Park, with 14.

Enfield Council leader Cllr Nesil Caliskan last week urged residents to continue to follow public health advice “to make sure we can return to normality as quickly and rapidly as we possibly can”.

Haringey Council leader Cllr Joseph Ejiofor stressed the pandemic was “far from over”, calling on residents to continue following lockdown restrictions and get vaccinated when they are given the opportunity to do so.

Their comments came after the Government revealed a “roadmap” out of lockdown that could see all restrictions lifted from June 21.

The latest infection rate data is based on figures from Public Health England published on the Government’s online coronavirus dashboard. It is subject to slight variations, as the figures are continually updated.

To protect individuals’ identities, exact numbers are not provided for areas with fewer than three cases of the virus.
