Current data quality grade
To help the public understand how well each state is performing, we have assigned each state a data-quality grade based on our assessment of the completeness of their reporting. Learn more

- Nov 3: On November 3, 2020, Georgia started reporting probable deaths in their COVID-19 Daily Status report. On November 4, we added the probable deaths in our Deaths (probable) field for November 3 and 4, causing the daily rise in deaths on the 3rd to appear as 480. This large increase includes the data dump of 450 probable deaths, many of which are not from the most recent 24 hour period.
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 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.

Data as of November 19 2020
Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (specimens) in the absence of better data.
On November 13, 202 we backfilled the Total PCR tests (specimens) time series to include only PCR testing, reported by the state in their data download file. This updates the previously reported series that until May 27, 2020 included both PCR and antibody tests.
On November 3, 2020, Georgia started reporting probable deaths and antigen positive cases in their COVID-19 Daily Status report. On November 4, we added the probable deaths in our Deaths (probable) field for November 3 and 4, causing the daily rise in deaths on the 3rd to appear as 480. This large increase includes the data dump of 450 probable deaths, many of which are not from the most recent 24 hour period. We also began recording the 29,937 antigen positive cases in our
positiveTestsPeopleAntigen API field. We have reached out to Georgia's health department for clarity on the definition of this number.
On October 21, 2020, Georgia did not update their "COVID-19 Daily Status Report" by the time of our daily update due to technical issues. In order to provide the most up to date data possible, we updated only Current Hospitalizations, which are sourced from a different Georgia government website.
As of September 18, 2020, Georgia's total test results are drawn from our
totalTestsViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.
As of August 28, 2020, we started reporting patients Now hospitalized from the Georgia Geospatial Information Office. The new count includes both patients with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis and patients under investigation, as is our standard practice where possible.

Two data changes in Georgia: GA has added 30,829 “antigen positive cases” to their totals. We asked for clarification on how we should account for these positive tests. In the meantime, we recorded these positive antigen tests in our “Positive Antigen Tests (People)” API field.
