A message from Dr Will Maimaris on the current situation of COVID cases in the borough
In response to recent news reports of a “spike” of COVID-19 cases in Haringey, Dr Will Maimaris, Director of Public Health at Haringey Council, shares the message below, to reassure residents of the current situation of COVID-19 cases in the borough.
It is vital that statistics are taken in context, and we are concerned by news reports which seem to be designed to scaremonger.
“We have no community outbreaks of COVID-19 in Haringey. The overall number of cases is very low (around 1 new case a day on average), so overall risk of being exposed to COVID-19 in Haringey is still low and much lower than other parts of the country.
“There is always some fluctuation in case numbers from week to week, but this is from a very low base and within the realms of what we would expect. We will continue to monitor the situation.
“While it is reassuring that that the number of new cases of COVID-19 continues to be low in Haringey, we must ensure we work together to keep it this way, by following public health guidance and acting with care and caution as we support our local businesses and schools to continue to open up.
“Today we published our draft local COVID-19 outbreak management plan for Haringey. This plan outlines how Haringey Council will work with other agencies and other parts of the public health system to prevent and manage local outbreaks of COVID-19.”
