Some Toronto neighbourhoods have reported over 100 new COVID-19 cases in the last three weeks, while others have reported just two.
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 of a 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.
Top five neighbourhoods with the most cases in the last three weeks:
- Waterfront Communities – The Island: 150 cases
- Niagara: 91 cases
- York University heights: 82 cases
- Annex: 73 cases
- Westminster-Branson: 69 cases
Top five neighbourhoods with the least cases in the last three weeks:
- Bridle Path-Sunnybrook-York Mills: 2 cases
- Hillcrest Village: 3 cases
- Guildwood: 4 cases
- Casa Loma: 5 cases
- Centennial Scarborough: 6 cases
Cases have been on the rise in recent weeks with the current rolling day average being 239, with an average of 6.3 hospitalizations.
There have been over 200 and 300 cases per day in the city, with Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health calling for an end to indoor dining and fitness classes.
And for residents to only leave their household for essential items.
