Peel Region (Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon) is currently the region with the second worst COVID-19 percent positivity rate (percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in the area) in Ontario — ending a period of at least four weeks in which it had the worst in the province.
Toronto-based research group ICES ranked all 34 public health units in Ontario based on their percent positivity for the week of February 28 to March 6.
Thunder Bay topped the list at 5.77%, followed by Peel at 5.00% and Toronto at 4.28%.
Ontario overall is listed eighth, at 2.67%.
The top ten public health units are listed above
Peel’s percentage is down from the previous week (February 21 to 27), where it reported 5.74%.
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.
