Latest Coronavirus Figures For Kent

The latest infection rates for Kent, Sussex and Surrey have been released from 5th November and there are some areas with very high rates. The average rate across England is currently 243.8 per 100,000 people.

The area in Kent with the highest infection rate is still Swale at 263.2, which is higher than the average across the country. Thanet comes in next at 256.5 with Spelthorne third at 216.3.

Sevenoaks had been high on the list recently, but the locals will be pleased that their area has dropped a long way down the list, although the rate is still 112.6.

Mole Valley and Dartford round out the top 5 places. There is a considerable number of places with infection rates still over 100, which will not please Government health officials. The list was compiled before lockdown was enforced in England, so statistical experts will be keen to review the next list of infection rates to see if lockdown is having any effect.

So where is the safest place in Kent right now? The best place right now is for you to stay indoors away from any germ infested people. Nowhere can be completely safe, so if you do not need to go out, then stay indoors. It’s warm, there is plenty of quiz shows on the telly to drive you insane and you are less likely to get into an argument with someone for not wearing a face mask!
