This Is What The Case Count By Neighbourhood Looks Like For Montreal Right Now

12 areas count over 300 cases each.

Here Are The Montreal Epidemic Curve & Case Count By Borough
  • The COVID-19 case count by Montreal borough shows that the outbreak has shifted over time, moving east after an initial concentration in the centre-west.
  • The region's "epidemic curve" illustrates the number of cumulative cases over time.

On April 17, Montreal Regional Public Health Director Dr. Mylène Drouin announced that the region had "attained a plateau" in its number of cases. Challenges remain, especially in Montreal senior residences, but she suggested that officials had at least managed to halt a dramatic increase in the daily number of new cases. It was good news for a city that has been battered by the health crisis.

Montreal has been called the epicentre of the pandemic in Quebec, a province that accounts for more than half the total number of confirmed cases in Canada as of April 20.

Once concentrated in the centre-west area of the island, the outbreak soon encompassed the region, touching every borough and municipality.

According to data from April 18, 12 areas, from the southwest to the northeastern tip of the island, now each count over 300 cases.

They are: Ahuntsic–Cartierville (663), Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (839), Côte-Saint-Luc (300), LaSalle (384), Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (488), Montréal-Nord (577), Plateau-Mont-Royal (363), Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles (444), Rosemont–La Petite Patrie (418), Sud-Ouest (350), Verdun (350), and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension (529).

With the highest number of cases and highest infection rate, respectively, Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and Côte-Saint-Luc (924.6 infections per 100,000 residents) have consistently been the hardest-hit jurisdictions in the Montreal region.
