North London boroughs have seen an increase in positive Covid tests, with Hackney reporting a 176.5 per cent rise.
The news comes as Health Secretary Matt Hancock stated this afternoon (Monday, June 7) that 25-29 year olds will be able to book their vaccination from tomorrow.
He told MPs this afternoon: “For anyone in their late 20s, or anyone else who feels they are unlikely to die from Covid, the best way for us to get our freedoms back and to get back to normal is for everybody to come forward and get the jab.
“It really matters that we all come forward and do this as this is the safest way out.”
In Hackney, 141 people tested positive from May 31 to June 6, a 176.5 per cent increase from the previous seven days.
