Latest coronavirus rates in Haringey

By Simon Allin, Local Democracy Reporter

The seven-day coronavirus infection rate has dropped during the seven days to November 27, falling to 125.6 new cases per 100,000 people.

The 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 revised.

White Hart Lane saw the highest number of new cases (19). Other areas in the borough with relatively high numbers included Hornsey Vale (18) and Roundway (15).

London has now entered Tier 2 restrictions, meaning non-essential businesses can reopen with safeguards in place to prevent the spread of the virus.

Some rules are stricter than the previous Tier 2 measures. Pubs and restaurants must close unless they are operating as restaurants, and hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with substantial meals.

On Wednesday, the government announced the approval of the first vaccine against Covid-19 for use in the UK. A Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson said it will be made available across the country from next week, with priority given to vulnerable groups.
