Toronto neighbourhoods with the most and least COVID-19 cases

Mar 22 2021, 9:16 am

Some Toronto neighbourhoods have reported more than 2,800 COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, while others have barely reported 100.

In May 2020, Toronto Public Health released an interactive map showing how many COVID-19 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 when releasing the geographic data.

The top three neighbourhoods with the highest total case count:

  1. Woburn: 2,894 cases
  2. Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown: 2,847 cases
  3. Downsview-Roding-CFB: 2,811 cases

The three neighbourhoods with the lowest total case count:

  1. Runnymede-Bloor West Village: 107 cases
  2. Bridle Path-Sunnybrook-York Mills: 134 cases
  3. Forest Hill South: 145 cases

Toronto’s COVID-19 cases have been increasing, with the seven-day moving average now at 432; a slight increase since last week. The seven-day average for hospitalizations is 13.4, and the active daily outbreaks in institutions is at 19.

Test result turnarounds have slowed, with 79% of COVID-19 tests returned within 24 hours, but that still meets the City’s goal of 60%. Within 48 hours 95% of COVID-19 tests are returned.
