As of October 25, 2020, a single neighbourhood in the 6ix is reporting more cases than the entire City of Barrie.

The data highlights just how hard Toronto's dense population has been hit during the pandemic.

The City Of Toronto

Currently, Barrie has an overall total of 408 confirmed cases of COVID-19, a stark contrast to Toronto, which has well over 26,000. 

The city's Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown neighbourhood alone has 791 cases.

In fact, multiple neighbourhoods in Toronto are reporting more cases than Barrie, including Glenfield-Jane Heights and York University Heights.

The city's high infection rate has forced it to revert back to a modified stage two of Ontario's reopening plan.

As of Tuesday, the province was sitting at a total of 72,051 confirmed COVID-19 cases.
