London boroughs where covid cases dropped below 100 per 100,000 people

Coronavirus cases in two London boroughs have fallen below a rate of 100 per 100,000 people as the capital enters its second lockdown.

London entered Tier 2 restrictions on October 17 because the average rate across the city rose above 100 per 100,000 people.

Now, however, two out of the London’s 32 boroughs have seen their rate drop below this mark.

It comes as over half of the capital’s boroughs saw a decline in cases last week compared with the previous week of data.

Firstly there’s Bromley in South East London, home to areas such as Orpington, Chislehurst and Beckenham.
