COVID-19 Hot Spots In Canada Have Been Updated & They're Worse Than Last Time

Well, this isn't good. COVID-19 hot spots in Canada have been revealed once again and after just two weeks, they're even worse than last time.

The Public Health Agency of Canada released new data and modelling on October 9 which showed the incidence rate of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 over the last two weeks.

There's a map of Canada that is colour coded based on those rates, the darkest shades being for 50-99 per 100,000 and 100+ per 100,000 people.

Seventeen health regions across Canada have reported either between 50 and 99 or more than 100 cases per 100,000 people over the last 14 days as of October 7.

Those places are in the five provinces with the highest case counts in the country.

There are incidence rates between 50 and 99 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, the Edmonton Zone in Alberta, the Interlake-Eastern and Winnipeg regions in Manitoba and Peel and York in Ontario.

The regions of Mauricie et du Centre-du-Québec and Estrie in Quebec also fall into that category.

Toronto and Ottawa reported more than 100 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in the last two weeks.

The same goes for Outaouais, Laurentides, Lanaudière, Montérégie, Capitale-Nationale, Chaudière-Appalaches and Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine in Quebec.

Back on September 22, the Public Health Agency of Canada released data that included information about hot spots.

There were nine health regions across the country then that had reported 50 to 99 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people.

No areas had a rate of over 100.
