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.

Race & ethnicity: cases per capita

Our latest tweets about New York

Our twitter handle is @COVID19Tracking@COVID19Tracking

Twitter
Our count of COVID-19 deaths has now surpassed 500k. We reached this milestone a few days after some other trackers because—unlike many trackers—we compile deaths only from New York State and not directly from NYC.

February 27, 2021

Twitter
NY has the highest per capita hospitalizations in the country right now, with 338 per million people.

February 18, 2021

Twitter
Cases and deaths reported in long-term-care facilities declined between Jan 28 and Feb 4 (excluding MO and NY, both of which recorded large backfills of LTC deaths).

February 11, 2021

Twitter
While most COVID-19 metrics are on a downward trend including the number of people currently hospitalized, new hospital admissions in the Northeast are moving slightly upward, most notably in NY and CT after last week’s winter snow storm.

February 11, 2021

Twitter
For the first time since Oct 22, no states are reporting over 400 COVID-19 hospitalizations per million people. NY is currently the highest with 390 hospitalizations per million people.
