Mississauga and Brampton continue to have highest COVID-19 percent positivity in Ontario
For at least three weeks in a row, Peel Region (Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon) remains the region with the worst COVID-19 percent positivity rate (percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in the area) in Ontario.
Toronto-based research group ICES ranked all 34 public health units in Ontario based on their percent positivity for the week of February 14 to 20.
Peel tops the list at 5.75%, followed by Toronto at 4.59% and York at 4.53%.
Ontario overall is listed sixth, at 2.68%.
While Peel also topped the list for the previous two weeks, its percent positivity is slightly down from the previous week (6.0%).
ICES says percent positivity reflects both the number of COVID-19 cases diagnosed and the number of people who were tested, and the numbers may fluctuate based on these factors.
