- Dec 14: On December 14, 2020 we backfilled Texas’ Total PCR tests (specimens). This time series maps tests to days based on the date that the specimen was collected, and as a result there is missing data in the previous week.
- Nov 1: On December 11, 2020, Texas started reporting probable cases and provided a historical time series starting on November 1. On December 12, 2020, we added the probable cases in our Probable cases field starting November 1st. This causes the daily rise in Texas probable cases on the 1st to appear as 71,734. This large increase includes the data dump of 67,475 probable cases, most 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.

A close look at the topline metrics in Texas shows evidence of major disruption in COVID-19 data reporting across our second-most populous state. When Texas has big problems, they really move the national numbers.

Data from Texas is still a bit wobbly due to storm-related reporting disruptions. It's likely that backlogs from the state have affected the 7-day case averages in the South.

Texas reported relatively high numbers for new cases and deaths today, likely due in part to backlog clearing following the recent winter storms.
February 24, 2021
Data from TX is still a bit wobbly. Total PCR tests (specimens) decreased by 85k without explanation, after increasing by over 400k yesterday.
