There were no new coronavirus infections recorded in London at the start of the week, according to Public Health England data.
On Monday there were no new infections in the capital over a 24 hour period, compared to 19 the day before.
There is a chance that the data could be misleading owing to a temporary technical glitch in the notification system on Saturday, but the rate of infections has undoubtedly been falling in the capital.
On 15 May there were just 24 new confirmed cases in London, far fewer than the 200,000 a day when the lockdown was announced.
Scientists believe that the number of infections in the capital is halving every 3.5 days, meaning it could be wiped out in a matter of weeks.
In London, 5,806 people have died of coronavirus in hospital after testing positive, according to the PHE figures published on Monday.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
