The number of coronavirus cases in Richmond increased by 466 over the weekend, official figures show.

A total of 13,589 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 in Richmond when the UK coronavirus daily dashboard was updated on July 19 (Monday), up from 13,123 on Friday.

The rate of infection in Richmond now stands at 6,863 cases per 100,000 people, lower than the England average of 8,474.

Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 141,106 over the period, to 5,473,477.

However, there were no new coronavirus deaths recorded over the weekend in Richmond.

The dashboard shows 287 people had died in the area by July 19 (Monday) – which was unchanged from Friday.

It means there have been no deaths in the past week, which is the same as the previous week.

They were among 15,681 deaths recorded across London.

The figures include anyone who died within 28 days of a positive test result for Covid-19, and whose usual residence was in Richmond.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death, so some areas might see their figures revised down.

Figures reported on a Monday are likely to be lower than as a result of a lag in reporting deaths over the weekend.

The figures also show that three in five people in Richmond have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The latest figures show 108,481 people had received both jabs by July 18 (Sunday) – 60% of those aged 18 and over, based on the number of people on the National Immunisation Management Service database.

Across England, 68% of people aged 18 and above had received a second dose of the jab.
