The latest detailed information on Covid-19 cases in Ealing borough shows that currently there is a hot spot in the Greenford area.
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) publishes the number of cases at a very local level. The borough of Ealing is divided into Middle Layer Super Output areas (MSOA) by the ONS.
The area designated as Greenford Ravenor Park MSOA had an infection rate of over 400 per 100,000 population one of the highest rates in London. There were 30 cases in the area, an 87.5% rise over the previous week.
Earlier on this month the area designated as Drayton Green & Cleveland in West Ealing had the highest infection rate in London. We asked Ealing Council if they could provide an explanation for the cluster of infections in the area but they did not respond. Although the number of cases has declined there were still 34 new cases reported over the last week.
The areas with the lowest levels of infection are South Ealing and Elthorne Park which have both seen fewer than 100 cases per 100,000 population over the last week.Ealing Covid-19 Infections To 6 NovemberAreaCasesWeekly rate per 100,000Change (%)Whitton Avenue West (MSOA Ealing 001)10106.80.0Horsenden (MSOA Ealing 002)20228.1100.0Northolt West (MSOA Ealing 003)22219.137.5Northolt East (MSOA Ealing 004)14208.675.0Bilton Road (MSOA Ealing 005)13190.544.4Greenford North (MSOA Ealing 006)15178.325.0Perivale (MSOA Ealing 007)17226.10.0Northolt South (MSOA Ealing 008)24288.820.0Kingshill Avenue (MSOA Ealing 009)16187.277.8Greenford West (MSOA Ealing 010)16152.1-5.9Hanger Hill East (MSOA Ealing 011)28361.955.6Greenford South (MSOA Ealing 012)13175.2-18.7Pitshanger (MSOA Ealing 013)16257.0166.7Greenford Ravenor Park (MSOA Ealing 014)30407.887.5Cuckoo Park (MSOA Ealing 016)21226.9-8.7Southall North (MSOA Ealing 017)31369.724.0Drayton Green & Cleveland (MSOA Ealing 018)34372.317.2Ealing Broadway West (MSOA Ealing 019)21236.4-4.5Ealing Broadway East (MSOA Ealing 020)26177.8-7.1Brent Valley (MSOA Ealing 022)7117.0-41.7Southall Park (MSOA Ealing 023)29307.816.0Southall West (MSOA Ealing 026)24199.2-4.9

Ealing Council leader Julian Bell said when announcing the new government lockdown restrictions, “In Ealing we have had one of the highest rates of Covid in the capital over recent weeks and the scientists are saying that rates are to increase further. We must act now to protect our community. By doing so we can save lives.”
