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.

Our latest tweets about Alabama

Our twitter handle is @COVID19Tracking@COVID19Tracking

Twitter
Today’s update includes no data from CT, KS, LA, or RI, and no data except hospitalizations from AL. The MA update includes data from approximately 24,800 PCR tests not reported yesterday due to a technical problem.

Twitter
We recently released a visualization of the @HHSGOV hospital data. It is a weekly average for COVID-19 metrics for each individual hospital across the country. This week, facilities across the South (though especially in Alabama) are under serious pressure.

But some small states have severe problems, too. Alabama, Arizona, and Nevada have very high hospitalization rates per capita.

January 8, 2021

Twitter
AL, CO, OR, UT, SD, and RI all reported record high case counts. Both ND and SD are reporting more than 1,000 cases per million people.

An important caveat to today's record high numbers. AL reported ~4k cases due to a backlog of antigen tests. CA reported 6k cases, 2k of which were backlogs.
