Mississauga and Brampton still has the highest COVID-19 percent positivity in the province
Numbers are slowly improving, but Peel Region (including Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon) currently 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 7 to 13.
Peel tops the list at 6.0%, followed by Toronto at 4.8% and York at 4.7%.
Ontario overall is listed eighth at 2.7%.
Peel also topped the list for the week of January 31 to February 6 at 7.0%, making that at least two weeks in a row where it had the highest COVID-19 percent positivity in the province.
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.
