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.

The numbers we’re presenting here do not include the 220k tests that North Carolina pulled out of its numbers today because of a reporting error. To more accurately present the national trends, we set the state's new tests to 0 for today in these charts.

Twitter
API users beware: there is a major caveat in the testing data today as North Carolina removed 220k tests from its cumulative numbers.

The record new cases are coming from many states. Notable jumps in Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and South Carolina. (Ohio looks bad today but this number is for two days.)
