Covid-19 Tracking

  • The Other COVID-19 Metric We Should Be Using
    As exposure risk increases, so does the need for more testing. The more we test, the more cases we can identify—which is a good thing. But are we looking at the right metrics to know if we are performing enough tests?  Read more »
  • Better COVID-19 Data Is Coming By August 1—But Will the Public See It?
    Starting in August, new federal rules will require testing labs to report better data on the spread of COVID-19 in the United States. What happens to this new information is up to state and local officials. Journalists, open-data advocates, and members of the public can help us hold governments accountable for collecting and publishing this urgently needed data. Read more »
  • Why Changing COVID-19 Demographics in the US Make Death Trends Harder to Understand
    COVID-19 death data lags behind testing data in ways we mostly understand. What we only partly understand is how an infection rate that seems to be skewing younger will affect the death toll in surging regional outbreaks. Read more »
  • Weekly COVID-19 Data Update, June 25: The US Pandemic Is Surging in the South and West
    The United States hit a record high for new COVID-19 cases this week. In many areas with rising case counts, testing isn’t keeping up. Meanwhile, hospitalizations in regions with big outbreaks are increasing. Read more »
  • It's Not Just Testing
    As case counts surge, we look at regional and state-level numbers to find out which recent jumps in COVID-19 case counts are likely to be explained by increased testing, and which are not. For the states with the worst recent numbers, the news is not good. Read more »
  • Weekly COVID-19 Data Update, June 18: The Regional Gap Widens
    As cases and hospitalizations continue to drop in the early Northeast epicenters, they are rising—in some areas quite sharply—in the South and West. We look at the numbers and at the relationship between an increase in tests and a rise in case counts. Read more »
  • What Is a Probable Case of COVID-19?
    Probable cases of COVID-19 make up only a small fraction of currently reported cases, but the CDC wants states to do a better job reporting them. So what are they and why do they matter? We took a closer look to help reporters and members of the public better understand this complex COVID-19 metric. Read more »
  • Weekly COVID-19 Data Update, June 11: Early Data from May Transmission
    The news this week is mixed and highly regional. In the early US epicenter of the outbreak, cases continue to drop. In the southern and western United States, cases are on the rise, as are COVID-19 hospitalizations. And as always, the lag makes the data difficult to put into context. Read more »
  • Early COVID-19 Race Data Shows Disproportionate Loss of Black Lives—It's Time for States to Release the Rest of the Data
    We're still missing vital race and ethnicity data, but where the data is strongest—official COVID-19 death rates—the toll of longstanding public health inequities within Black communities is painfully clear. Five months into the US outbreak, several states are still not collecting or releasing complete demographic data required to address these disparities and safely re-open state economies. It's time for this to change. Read more »
  • Tracking the States and the CDC
    For months, we've worked to patch together inconsistent state-reported data into a national set of numbers for COVID-19 case, death, and testing in the US. The CDC has now published a COVID Data Tracker, but their data only partially matches the numbers we get from the state public health authorities. So we took a closer look. Read more »
  • Position Statement on Antibody Data Reporting
    As antibody tests become more widely available across the United States, we call on all states and territories to preserve the integrity and usefulness of their COVID-19 testing data by maintaining separate viral testing and antibody testing counts. Read more »
  • We’re Launching a New State Grading System
    We're rolling out a new, more rigorous system for grading the public health data each state reports. This new scoring system sets a more comprehensive and exact standard for evaluating how complete and meaningful each state’s data is. Read more »
  • Tracking Race and Ethnicity in the COVID-19 Pandemic
    The COVID-19 pandemic isn't affecting all communities the same way. That's why we're partnering with American University’s Antiracist Research & Policy Center to launch a new project: the COVID Racial Data Tracker. Read more »
