Google mobility data shows London in Covid lockdown

Postby Community Editor » Mon Jan 25, 2021 12:35 pm

Google has revealed people's movements in London under the third lockdown. 

The tech giant is using location data gathered from phones to help public health officials understand how people’s movements have changed.

The reports use data from people who have opted in to storing their location history with Google to help illustrate the degree to which people are adhering to government instructions.

The latest Covid-19 Community Mobility Report dated January 21 looks at data in London over several weeks with the most recent data representing approximately 2–3 days ago (this is how long it takes to produce the reports).

Statistics are based on a baseline value for that day of the week.

The baseline used is the average for the corresponding day of the week during the five-week period January 3 to February 6, 2020.

Here is a breakdown of the data for Wandsworth and Lambeth:Image
