Mississauga and Brampton have highest COVID-19 percent positivity in Ontario for four consecutive weeks
For at least four weeks in a row, Peel Region (Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon) has been 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 21 to 27.
Peel topped the list at 5.74%, followed by Thunder Bay at 4.92% and Toronto at 4.00%.
Ontario overall is listed eighth, at 2.68%.
Peel reported 5.75% for the previous week (February 14 to 20).
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.
