Among Middlesex-London residents, the rate of encephalitis/meningitis cases decreased between 2005 and 2018. During the same time period, the rate for Ontario was relatively stable.

Across the 14-year time period, the local rate generally exceeded the provincial rate, however, the Middlesex-London rate was comparable to the rate across Ontario from 2015 to 2018, the most recent four years.
