Cumulative COVID-19 Cases by Municipal Area in South of Fraser/Fraser Valley

The BC CDC has recently shared the number of COVID-19 cases by Local Health Area. They included a map which has a colour-coded representation of the cases per 100,000. To help quantify the data further, I thought I would create a chart.

This chart is based on the following table which includes the cumulative number of COVID-19 cases from January until the end of July from the BC CDC, and the 2019 municipal population estimates.

Municipal Area Population Cumulative Cases Rate per 100,000
Chilliwack 94,534 34 36
Delta 109,490 62 57
Ridge Meadows 110,950 96 87
Langley 158,642 138 87
Surrey/White Rock 605,553 585 97
Abbotsford 158,457 454 287
Mission 43,202 158 366

As a note, there was a serious COVID-19 outbreak in the Mission Institution medium security federal prison.
