Data as of November 19 2020

Notes:

New York State has not reported new Ever hospitalized data since June 2, 2020.

As of November 23, 2020, New York's totalTestResults are drawn from our totalTestEncountersViral field instead of calculated via positive+negative.

The Recovered data point we report for New York reflects the number of lab-confirmed COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital and therefore does not represent the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, since many people with COVID are never hospitalized.

Negative test results reported in our API and CSVs are calculated by subtracting Positive PCR tests (people) from Total PCR tests (people).

As of June 1, 2020, New York City reported 5740 more deaths (probable and confirmed) than New York State reports for NYC. Due to an exclusion of probable COVID-19 deaths in the state's data, New York City and New York State report substantially diverging death counts. We use the data from the state, so our dataset excludes these probable COVID-19 deaths.

New York does not report race or ethnicity data for cases. However, the disparity in deaths shows how many ‘Black or African American’ people have been affected by COVID-19.

Total deaths remain highest in the Northeast, with nearly 29,000—certainly a substantial undercount, as New York reports only deaths within long-term care facilities, not those linked to such facilities but occurring in hospitals.

In better news, New York has continued to test large numbers of people while cases have remained consistently, impressively low.

Florida has shut down many testing sites due to the storm, but here’s a post to help break down the differences between the Florida outbreak and what we saw in New York back in the spring.

And finally, deaths from the beginning to yesterday. (Along with your periodic reminder that New York State still is not reporting over 5000 probable deaths recorded by New York City and the CDC.)
