The number of recorded coronavirus cases in Barnet increased by 21 in the last 24 hours, official figures show.

Public Health England figures show that 30,260 people had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 by 9am on Tuesday 13th April in Barnet, up from 30,239 the same time on Monday.

The health body recently changed the way it records the figures. Cases identified through a positive lateral flow test – those which can deliver results within half an hour – will no longer be counted if the person then takes a PCR test, which is sent to a lab to be checked, and receives a negative result within three days.

The rate of infection in Barnet now stands at 7,644 cases per 100,000 people, higher than the England average of 6,795. Across the UK, the number of recorded cases increased by 2,471 over the period, to 4,375,814.

Barnet’s cases were among the 714,079 recorded across London, a figure which rose by 274 over the period.

Cumulative case counts include patients who are currently unwell, have recovered and those that have died.
