With the cold winter months behind us, how many north London hospital beds are occupied by Covid patients?

Here are the latest figures for NHS trusts serving Barnet, Brent, Camden, Hackney, Islington and surrounding areas:

Royal Free

The daily count of confirmed Covid patients dropped below 100 for the first time in more than two months according to the most recent data available.

Last Tuesday - March 1 - saw the lowest patient levels since Christmas Eve across the Royal Free, Chase Farm and Barnet hospitals.

The combined total of 91 patients on that date had fallen when compared to the 110 recorded on the previous Tuesday (February 22).

However, the average number of beds occupied by Covid patients each day remained in triple figures at the trust.

There was an average of 102 patients per day in the week to March 1, compared to 106 over the previous seven days.
