ovid appears to be in freefall in London now, with 27 out of 32 boroughs seeing daily cases tumble by a third or more in a week.

In GreenwichHackney and Tower Hamlets, the number of positive tests has almost halved in seven days.

The rate per 100,000 population, which peaked at 1,118 at the start of lockdown, has now been squeezed to 332 in the most recent data from Public Health England.

However, health experts warned that the deadly wave is far from over yet, with 2,765 new positive tests reported on Tuesday.

It was the lowest number for eight weeks, but doctors are on the alert for another mutation of the virus that could cause cases to rise again.
