Whilst infant mortality rates vary significantly across London boroughs, in all but nine boroughs, they are lower than in England overall. 

The average number of deaths per 1,000 live births in 2018 to 2020 was 3.4 in London, whereas in England it was 3.9. Hounslow is the borough with the highest infant mortality rate in London (4.7 per 1,000 live births). Wandsworth is the London borough with the lowest infant mortality rate (1.9 per 1,000 live births).

The data is based on three-year averages and therefore data referring to COVID-19 (in 2020) cannot be isolated from the latest datapoint.
