Golders Green ward had the highest Covid-19 infection rate in Barnet, according to latest statistics from the council.

At 71.74 cases per 100,000 people, Golders Green ward’s case rate was two and a half times higher than the borough average of 28.6 cases per 100,000, for the week ending September 26.

Golders Green had the largest Jewish population of any ward in the country in the 2011 Census, but there is nothing to link the high number of cases to the Jewish community specifically.

Golders Green has recorded the highest number of confirmed cases in Barnet with 899, followed by Childs Hill with 698 and Garden Suburb with 679.
