New cases (Notes)
- Nov 3: On November 3, 2020, Georgia started reporting “Anitgen Positive Cases” which are recorded as Probable cases. The roughly 30,000 cases recorded on November 3 were from the previous months.
- 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 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.

We moved GA’s metric for “Antigen Positive Cases” from our API field for antigen positive individuals to that for probable cases, after a review. The change added 162,028 cumulative cases in GA distributed over time from 11/3 onward, when GA began providing the number.

Our eyes are on 5 states this week: AL, AZ, CA, GA, and FL―where surges in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are steadily growing. Alarmingly, AZ currently has the worst per-capita new case numbers in the world.

But this view masks the seriousness of the situation in the three largest southern states. Hospitalizations are rapidly rising in Texas, Florida, and Georgia.

The trends in currently hospitalized data suggest that outbreak conditions in Midwest states are improving: 9 of 12 states saw falling hosp. this week compared to last. But nationally these improvements were offset by large hosp. increases in CA, GA, PA, and many Eastern states.
