Mr Khan said ( about Kevin Fenton ) : "Londoners have made monumental sacrifices and their efforts have had a big impact in bringing the number of cases down during the November lockdown. Areas in the South East and London are now regularly seeing some of the highest coronavirus infection rates in England. Twelve out of the 20 places with the highest rates were from these regions in the week to 3 December. A month ago, no areas from these regions were in the top 100. Kent accounts for eight of those 12 areas, with Medway currently seeing the highest infection rate in England of about 607 cases per 100,000 people. In London, the boroughs of Havering and Barking and Dagenham have seen infection rates rise above 300 per 100,000 - and climbing. The virus in these regions seems to have been spreading prior to England's second national lockdown, with cases increasing four weeks ago. Many parts of the country saw a drop or levelling off in infections for a few weeks after this point, but more recently the virus has started to spread again. Shoppers flocked to high streets and shopping malls across London on the first weekend after restrictions eased but in numbers well below pre-pandemic levels. Any effect of an increase in contacts between people will not be seen for several days. Deaths of patients with coronavirus in London have dropped drastically from early April's peak. Prof Kevin Fenton, London regional director for PHE, said: "The latest data shows case rates are on the increase again in most London boroughs, including in the at-risk over 60s. "Covid-19 behaves like clockwork - the more contact we have with others, the higher the chance of us catching or spreading the virus. "If we want to keep infections down, every one of us needs to remain vigilant and follow the rules as we go about shopping, eating out or meeting friends outdoors"
