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

New deaths (Calculated)
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
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.

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.)
