The latest official figures on the number of coronavirus cases show no reports of any positive tests in the W12 post code area.
There was a zero return for all localities in the week to 6 April based on data provided by Public Health England.
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) divides the country up into population areas of between 10-15,000. The local areas are Shepherd’s Bush North, Shepherd’s Bush South, Shepherd’s Bush West, Askew, Old Oak and Wormwood, White City, Wormholt Road and Brook Green. All of these areas had no reports although the ONS reports a zero return for an area if there are less than two cases to protect the privacy of the individuals.
Hammersmith and Fulham Borough currently has an overall infection rate of 15 cases per 100,000 population, well below the London average.
A local GP commented, “Obviously this is tremendous news but it would be dangerous if it led people to stop observing social distancing and other guidance. The partial opening of pubs and more shops combined with more people returning to the workplace is likely to result in a return of the virus in the area but hopefully a small one.
“Details of infections in the area is valuable but it shouldn’t be forgotten there are neighbourhoods which are just a short walk away which still are seeing a significant number of cases.”
