Five Eastern Counties

The five Eastern counties around London have the following numbers of people, who have tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Cambridgeshire – 673 of 852,523 or 0.08%
  • Essex – 2320 of 1,832,752 or 0.13%
  • Kent – 3232 of 1,568.623 or 0.20%
  • Norfolk – 1355 of 903,680 or 0.15%
  • Suffolk – 936 of 768,556 or 0.12%

Note that the second figure is the population and the third is the percentage found positive.

Compare these figures with some other places, including Hackney where I live now.

Blackpool – 377 of 139,720 or 0.27%

Cumbria – 1734 of 498,888 or 0.35%

Hackney – 596 of 279,665 or 0.21%

You can make some interesting deductions.
