Tracking COVID-19 by Neighbourhood

The City of Toronto publishes COVID-19 recent case rates (cases with episode dates during the previous 21 days, per 100,000 people) for its 140 defined neighbourhoods. The graph below shows the case rates since mid-December for Bedford Park – Nortown and its surrounding neighbourhoods. All of SAHRA is within this neighbourhood. Bedford Park – Nortown is shown in red. The graph clearly shows that the case rates within our neighbourhood are not insignificant and they have been rising since the beginning of March.

A caveat: the City assigns cases to a resident’s home address. This is not necessarily where the case was transmitted. A resident may have picked up COVID-19 elsewhere, but equally someone who lives outside of Bedford Park – Nortown may have acquired COVID-19 in our neighbourhood. As the City mentions on its website “It is possible to become infected with COVID-19 anywhere. That is why it is important to practice hand hygiene, wear masks, keep a distance of six feet, and avoid large gatherings.”
 
Data are updated Monday, Wednesday and Friday, except on statutory holidays. SAHRA will endeavour to update this graph within 24 hours of the City’s update.
