Toronto neighbourhoods with the most and least COVID-19 cases

Nov 10 2020, 11:48 am

Some Toronto neighbourhoods have reported over 900 COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, while others have reported over 35.

On May 28, Toronto Public Health released an interactive map that shows how many coronavirus cases are reported across neighbourhoods.

It’s important to note that areas with lower rates of coronavirus cases are not safer and do not pose less risk of infection.

“By knowing where those impacted by COVID-19 live, and by assessing other important risk factors, Toronto Public Health is better able to inform preventive actions, identify where proactive testing can be helpful, and take action to reduce virus spread,” the City said in May.

The top three neighbourhoods with the highest total case count:

  1. Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown: 917 cases
  2. Glenfield Jane-Heights: 867 cases
  3. West Humber Clairville: 855 cases

The top three neighbourhoods with the lowest total case count:

  1. Bridal Path – Sunnybrook – York Mills: 38 cases
  2. Runnymede-Bloor West Village: 40 cases
  3. Lambton Baby Point: 41 cases

Cases have been reaching record highs in Toronto with 520 cases on Tuesday and 504 on Monday.

The seven-day moving average has now increased to 352 with active daily outbreaks in institutions averaging 50 a day.
