Public Health England says "Londoners hold the key to reducing infection rates" after a rise in cases across the city.

All 32 London boroughs are currently listed as 'areas of concern' by the health body, with the weekly rate as high as 61.6 in Redbridge.

The weekly rate of cases is higher in every borough in the seven days to September 28 than in the seven days to September 21 - except in Bexley and Kensington & Chelsea, where the latest rate is slightly lower.

Professor Kevin Fenton, London's regional director for Public Health England, said: "Cases of coronavirus in London have been steadily increasing in recent weeks and we are now at a tipping point in our efforts to limit the spread of the virus in the city.

"Londoners still hold the key to reducing infection rates and lessening the impact of any second wave by making a continued conscious effort to consider our movements and behaviour.

"Small actions can have a big impact on these trends, and by sticking to social distancing, practising good hand hygiene and following guidelines around the rule of six and face coverings, we can all play our part. Londoners have done it before and now is the time to do it again.

"Finally, be aware of your health – if you have any coronavirus symptoms, self-isolate immediately and book a test as soon as possible. Every individual can make a difference."

Public Health England says it is seeing "consistent increases" in hospital admissions, patients in intensive care, GP attendance, and calls to NHS 111 for Covid-related symptoms.

Data on the government's daily coronavirus dashboard shows as of 4pm (October 1), there were 263 Covid-19 patients in London hospitals, including 49 on a ventilator.
