Every day, our volunteers compile the latest numbers on tests, cases, hospitalizations, and patient outcomes from every US state and territory.
COVID-19 isn't affecting all communities equally. We've partnered with the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research to collect the most complete racial data anywhere in the COVID Racial Data Tracker.
We’re tracking racial and ethnic data from every state that reports it—and pushing those that don’t to start. Together with the BU Center for Antiracist Research, we’re analyzing this data to uncover the true impact of the outbreak on vulnerable communities.See the racial data tracker
Our data powers crucial reporting and research. Here are just a few of the organizations that rely on our dataset.
Johns Hopkins relies on our testing data for its COVID-19 Testing Insights Initiative, which brings data and expert analysis together in one place. The initiative is designed to help policymakers and the public understand the trajectory of the pandemic, and make decisions about the path forward.
The White House
The White House chose the COVID Tracking Project as the best source to cite for daily US test numbers in its “Opening Up America Again” testing strategy.
COVID Exit Strategy
Created by a group of public health and crisis experts, covidexitstrategy.org identifies critical interventions needed to stop the spread of COVID-19, and urges government decision-makers to apply them. They use our data to power a dashboard comparing each state’s interventions and testing levels with case counts and deaths over time.
See how we work, what we’re learning, and what’s changing in our data on our project blog.
Weekly cases grew 26 percent and nearly 80,000 people in the United States are hospitalized with COVID-19. That’s one-third higher than the nation’s previous record.
With COVID-19 cases surging across the country, long-term care facilities experienced their largest increase in six months. The LTC case surge is concentrated in the Midwest, mirroring the pattern of the US pandemic as a whole.
One in 378 US residents tested positive for COVID-19 this week, and hospitalizations have nearly doubled in the past two weeks. The United States is posting new records for cases and hospitalizations nearly every day, and healthcare systems are reaching capacity in many areas where cases have spiked.By The COVID Tracking ProjectNovember 12, 2020
