New tests Total PCR tests (specimens)
We calculate daily changes based on the data states report each day. Some states report new cases, tests, and deaths using other methods. Please consult official state data sources for more information. We chart “New tests” using different units across jurisdictions, because not all states and territories report tests in the same units. Learn more about total test units and see what we chart for each jurisdiction in our total tests documentation.
We do not have a complete dataset for every metric in every state. If we have data for less than 30% of the past 90 days for a given metric, you’ll see a warning instead of a chart for that metric.
All the data for these charts is available for download. You can also review tabular national data on our US historical data page and data for each state and territory on the individual state or territory’s overview page.

Race & ethnicity data
We compute the number of cases and deaths per 100k people for each race and ethnicity.
These numbers show the scale of outcomes compared to the size of each group’s population. These are not the number of cases or deaths, rather the proportion of each demographic group who have been affected.
Race & ethnicity: cases per capita
(All data is calculated)
Race & ethnicity: deaths per capita
(All data is calculated)
* Based on <10 deaths among members of this race/ethnicity. Interpret with caution.

The changes in ME dropped totalTestResults by around 40k. The changes in IL made no impact to the value of totalTestResults at the topline but may have shifted earlier values.

For our API users: Yesterday, we switched totalTestResults to use values from totalTestsViral instead of being calculated from positive+negative in 4 states: IL, ME, MI, and SD.

Zooming into the state level, more than 10 states broke case records today: AK, AR, AZ, DE, IN, MA, ME, NJ, PA, RI, and VT. Note: AZ had a higher count on Dec. 1, but it was a data backlog.

Another 7 states — HI, ME, MT, NM, SD, UT, WY — are not reporting race / ethnicity for deaths. TX is reporting but >70% of cases and deaths are listed as unknown. Some data is better than none, but it's still not enough. See the rest of the data:
