We’re looking to speak to people who live or work in Barking as part of our investigation into the recent surge of positive coronavirus cases
An estimated 54.2% of residents in the London borough of Barking and Dagenham are thought to have had coronavirus, according to new modelling released last week.
The Guardian would like to speak to residents on what it’s like to live in a coronavirus hotspot. We are particularly interested in hearing from those who have had Covid-19 or know someone who has, as well as families who have lost loved ones to coronavirus. If you are a resident of Becontree estate, where cases have reported to have soared, we would also like to hear from you.
