As Ontario continues to battle COVID-19, some regions across the province are reporting thousands more active cases than others.
Timiskaming, the region with the lowest number of active cases, only had seven active COVID-19 cases as of April 16, while North Bay Parry Sound District is reporting 19.
However, Toronto isn't only seeing higher numbers compared to districts with lower populations; it's also stomping out nearby regions.
For example, Peel Region, a neighbouring area, has nearly 5,000 fewer active cases, sitting at 7,600.
Ontario reports record-breaking COVID-19 cases on Friday
On Friday, Christine Elliott, minister of health, said the province is reporting 4,812 new cases of COVID-19.
This marks the highest number of new cases the province has seen since the start of the pandemic.
Out of these cases, 1,469 of them were in Toronto, while 851 were reported in Peel and 491 in York Region.
Currently, Ontario is under a stay-at-home order and Elliott is reminding residents to only leave their homes for essential reasons.
