January has proven to be the deadliest month in terms of Covid-19 fatalities in the Brentford and Isleworth area with 36 more people succumbing to the disease.

This surpasses the total for any month since the pandemic started and brings the death toll in the area to 110.

This surge in people dying from the virus was expected after a dramatic increase in infections and hospital admissions during December. It is widely hoped that the month will mark the peak of deaths the infection rate started falling earlier this year. However, Hounslow borough currently has the highest infection rate in London.

The worst hit area was Brentford East which saw eight more deaths in January. Since the beginning of the spread of the virus Spring Grove has seen the highest number of deaths at 24.

There is better news on the current number of cases in the area with rates static or falling except of in Brentford East were there were twenty new infections in the week to 20 February. Isleworth and Ivybridge currently has the worst rate of infection at 171.5 cases per 100,000 population.

The ONS divide the country into ‘Middle Super Output Areas’ (MSOAs) of roughly equal population size.

Hounslow is currently the worst affected borough in London with a weekly Covid case rate of 155 per 100,000 of population compared to the London average of 83,

The total number of Covid-19 cases identified in London is 694,187 as at 24 February, this compares to 3,639,352 cases for England as a whole

Up to and including 21 February 1,746,338 people in London had received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and 66,471 had received two doses.

On 25 February the daily number of new people tested positive for COVID-19 in London was reported as 919.

Professor Kevin Fenton, London regional director for Public Health England reacting to the Prime Minister’s announcement of the roadmap for the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions said,

“There is no doubt it’s been a long, hard winter for everyone in London, but this week we can finally start to feel cautiously optimistic about the coming months.

“As the Prime Minister laid out the steps in his roadmap on Monday, we will all have heard it slightly differently. For many, there would have been anticipation as they started counting the days until they could see loved ones again. For others, who may have been juggling childcare with working from home, or just worried about the mental health of their children, there will have been relief at the news of schools re-opening. Of course, for others again there will be anxiety, doubts and worries – perhaps because they work in an industry that isn’t re-opening just yet or because they fear what easing lockdown will mean for COVID-19 rates across the city and country.

“All of these feelings are completely natural and to be expected. But however you feel, it is important to remember that what the Prime Minister has outlined is a careful, incremental approach to opening up different parts of society.”
