At least 537 new coronavirus deaths and 47,126 new cases were reported in the United States on Aug. 10. Over the past week, there have been an average of 53,730 cases per day, a decrease of 18 percent from the average two weeks earlier.

As of Tuesday afternoon, more than 5,107,600 people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus and at least 163,200 have died, according to a New York Times database.

About this data The hot spots map shows the share of population with a new reported case over the last week. Parts of a county with a population density lower than 10 people per square mile are not shaded. Data for Rhode Island is shown at the state level because county level data is infrequently reported. For total cases and deaths: The map shows the known locations of coronavirus cases by county. Circles are sized by the number of people there who have tested positive or have a probable case of the virus, which may differ from where they contracted the illness. For per capita: Parts of a county with a population density lower than 10 people per square mile are not shaded.

Case numbers remain persistently high across most of the country, though reports of new cases have dropped since late July, when the country averaged well over 60,000 per day. Because the number of people hospitalized and the percentage of people testing positive also rose in many states, the summer case spike cannot be solely explained by increased testing.

Deaths, though still well below their peak spring levels, reached an average of more than 1,000 per day by early August, more than double the average from early July. Some states reimposed limits on businesses and gatherings. Governors and even some mayors announced new restrictions on interstate travel.

These states have had recent growth in newly reported cases over the last 14 days. The White House released criteria for states to reopen based on a “downward trajectory” of cases over the last 14 days, though it did not define how to measure the trajectory.

Note: States and territories are grouped according to how the seven-day average of new cases has changed from two weeks ago to today.

Where new deaths are increasing

These states have had the highest growth in newly reported deaths over the last 14 days. Deaths tend to rise a few weeks after a rise in infections, as there is typically a delay between when people are infected, when they die and when deaths are reported. Some deaths reported in the last two weeks may have occurred much earlier because of these delays.

In late February, there were just a few dozen known cases in the United States, most of them linked to travel. But by summer, the virus had torn through every state, infecting more people than the combined populations of Nebraska, Vermont and Montana. The national death toll exceeded 160,000, more than the population of Syracuse, N.Y. And after weeks of progress, reports of new cases reached record levels in July.

The New York Times has found that official tallies in the United States and in more than a dozen other countries have undercounted deaths during the coronavirus outbreak because of limited testing availability.

The New York Times is engaged in a comprehensive effort to track the details of every coronavirus case in the United States, collecting information from federal, state and local officials around the clock. The numbers in this article are being updated several times a day based on the latest information our journalists are gathering from around the country. The Times has made that data public in hopes of helping researchers and policymakers as they seek to slow the pandemic and prevent future ones.

The Times’s data collection for this page is based on reports from state and local health agencies, a process that is unchanged by the Trump administration’s new requirement that hospitals bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and send all patient information to a central database in Washington.

The places hit hardest

The coronavirus has left no state unscathed. But its impact has been wildly uneven.

In New York and California, the states with the most known cases, more than 1 million people have had the coronavirus. In some less populous states, including Vermont and Hawaii, there are fewer than 5,000 patients. And in a handful of remote counties, there has been not even one positive test.

The nation’s most populous places have all suffered tremendously. In Cook County, Ill., which includes Chicago, more than 4,900 people have died. In Los Angeles County, Calif., at least 208,000 people have had the virus. And in New York City, about one of every 360 residents has died.

But unlike in the early days of the pandemic, it is not so simple to say that big cities have been hit hardest. On a per capita basis, many of the places with the most cases have been small cities and rural communities in the Midwest and South.

And in some Sun Belt cities that were spared the worst of the pandemic in April, case and death numbers have surged to fearsome levels in recent weeks. In the county that includes McAllen, Texas, more than 85 percent of all coronavirus deaths have been announced since the start of July. The Miami, Phoenix and Los Angeles areas averaged more than 2,000 cases per day at their peak.

Hundreds of thousands of cases traced to clusters

Coronavirus outbreaks have been traced to funerals, fast food restaurants, cruise ships and Navy vessels. But most of the biggest known clusters have been in nursing homes, food processing plants and correctional facilities, all places where people are packed in close quarters with little opportunity for social distancing.

Coronavirus cases have been reported in more than 17,000 nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to data collected by The New York Times from states, counties, the federal government and facilities themselves. More than 382,000 residents and employees have been infected in those homes, and more than 64,000 have died. That means about 40 percent of deaths from the virus in the United States have been tied to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

“This disease creates the potential for a perfect storm in a long-term care facility — large groups of vulnerable people living together and a highly transmissible virus that may not cause symptoms in those who care for them,” said Dr. Daniel Rusyniak, the chief medical officer for Indiana’s state social services agency.

In American jails and prisons, more than 140,000 people have been infected and at least 932 inmates and correctional officers have died. During interviews with dozens of inmates across the country, many said they were frightened and frustrated by what prison officials have acknowledged has been an uneven response to the virus.

“I am very concerned,” said Adamu Chan, an inmate at San Quentin State Prison in California, which has become one of the nation’s largest coronavirus clusters with more than 2,400 infections and 23 deaths. “There’s no way to social distance. We all eat together. We have a communal bathroom. There’s no way to address a public health issue in an overcrowded facility.”
