On May 28, the city released an interactive map that shows where individuals live, but not necessarily where they were initially exposed to this virus.
The map shows cases by neighborhood since January 21, 2020.
It is important to note that areas with lower rates of coronavirus cases are not safer and do not pose a lower risk of infection.
“By knowing where those affected by COVID-19 live and by assessing other important risk factors, Toronto public health is better able to inform preventive actions, identify areas where proactive testing can be helpful and take action to reduce the spread of the virus, ”the city said at the time.
The north-west and north-east regions have the highest number of positive cases.
Here are the most affected neighborhoods in Toronto:
- Glenfield-Jane Heights: 512 cas
- West Humber-Clairville: 503 cas
- Downsview-Roding-CFB: 462 cas
Here are the least affected neighborhoods in Toronto:
- Danforth: 14 cas
- Yonge-Eglinton: 16 cas
- Runnymede Bloor West Village: 20 cas
Over the past few weeks, the overall seven-day moving average of new cases in Toronto has been 21. And over the past two days, the city has reported 8 new cases per day.
Earlier this week, Toronto Public Health’s COVID-19 monitoring dashboard officially achieved an overall “green” status for the first time during the pandemic.
This means the city is meeting its goal of spreading and containing the virus, laboratory testing, health system capacity and public health system capacity.
To date, in Toronto, there are 15,548 including 14,117 cured and 1,163 deaths reported.
