About this data The hot spots map shows the share of population with a new reported case over the last week. 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.

The State of the Virus

Update for April 9

  • Case numbers nationally are largely stagnant, but there is high variability from state to state. Infection levels remain low in most of the West and South, but are increasing rapidly in parts of the Midwest.
  • Michigan continues to report cases at a far higher rate than any other state. Deaths and hospitalizations are also climbing. As of Friday, nine of the 10 metro areas with the country’s highest recent case rates were in Michigan.
  • There are signs that case numbers in New York and New Jersey are stabilizing, though both states continue to have some of the country’s worst infection rates.
  • About three million people are receiving a vaccine every day, a figure that has been essentially flat for the last week. At least 25 percent of residents are fully vaccinated in New Mexico, South Dakota, Rhode Island, Maine, Alaska, Connecticut and North Dakota.
  • Reports of new cases have increased by about 50 percent in Illinois over the last two weeks, with especially high infection rates around Peoria.

Where new cases are higher and staying high

States where new cases are higher had a daily average of at least 15 new cases per 100,000 people over the past week. Charts show daily cases per capita and are on the same scale. Tap a state to see detailed map page.

Where new cases are lower but going up

States where new cases are lower had a daily average of less than 15 new cases per 100,000 people over the past week. Charts show daily cases per capita and are on the same scale. Tap a state to see detailed map page.

Where new deaths are increasing

Charts show daily deaths per capita and are on the same scale. States are sorted by deaths per capita for the most recent day. Tap a state to see detailed map page.

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.

7-day average
Source: Hospitalization data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
About this data Currently hospitalized is the number of patients with Covid-19 reported by hospitals on that day. Single-day dips and spikes could be due to inconsistent reporting by hospitals. Hospitalization numbers early in the pandemic are undercounts due to incomplete reporting by hospitals to the federal government.

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 information on 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 places hit hardest

The coronavirus has moved across the country in distinct phases, devastating one region, then another.

After significant progress, case numbers have started to increase again.

The Northeast experienced the worst last spring, as temporary morgues were deployed in New York City. Over the summer, cases spiked across the Sun Belt, prompting many states to tighten restrictions just weeks after reopening. In the fall, the virus filled rural hospitals in the Midwest and West as it devastated communities that had for months avoided the pandemic’s worst.

By the time cases finally fell from their peak in 2021, every part of the country had been devastated.

Because outbreaks in group settings where large numbers of people are in close quarters have been a major driver of the pandemic, The Times has paid special attention to cases in nursing homes, food processing plants, correctional facilities and colleges.

Information on these cases comes directly from official releases by governments, companies and institutions. The tables below show cases that have been identified since the beginning of the pandemic, and with the exception of the table for colleges and universities, only show groups of cases where 50 or more are related to a specific site.

Cases at colleges and universities

Some universities have decided to hold most or all classes online, but many others have reopened their campuses, often with extensive procedures and rules governing behavior and testing. In August and September, as the fall term began, college towns saw some of the highest per capita case growth in the country. And by November, as cases surged across the country, tens of thousands more cases emerged at universities.

In year two of the pandemic, colleges are taking different approaches to commencement.

More than 530,000 cases among college students and employees over the course of the pandemic, according to a Times database, including more than 130,000 in the first two months of 2021. At least 100 deaths have been reported, largely in 2020, and most of them among employees, not students.

Cases in jails and prisons

In American jails and prisons, more than 661,000 people have been infected and at least 2,990 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.

New York prisoners must be offered the vaccine, a judge ruled.

Michael Scronic, 49, an inmate at Fort Dix federal prison in New Jersey, who says he has high blood pressure and has previously had skin cancer, said successive outbreaks of the virus had led to despair among inmates.

"We're on our third wave. What's going to happen in wave four?” Mr. Scronic said. "The biggest frustration is that there's no end in sight. It appears to be just a continuation of these waves, and then we just have to wait out the next wave."

Cases at nursing homes and long-term care facilities

Coronavirus cases have been reported in more than 31,000 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 1.3 million residents and employees of those homes have been infected through late February, and more than 179,000 have died. That means, as of March 30, more than 30 percent of deaths from the virus in the United States had been tied to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

Nursing home workers have been eligible for the vaccine for months, but some are hesitant.

“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.

The counts in this table of coronavirus cases at individual nursing homes were last updated as recently as Jan. 12, 2021. Since then, we have continued to update state-level totals for cases and deaths in long-term care facilities.

Cases at food production facilities

Early in the pandemic, cases emerged by the hundreds in food processing facilities. The outbreaks disrupted the country’s meat supply and led some of the hardest-hit plants to temporarily close.

In July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported more than 16,000 infections and 86 deaths tied to meat and poultry processing. But those numbers are almost certainly an undercount. Only 28 states provided data to the C.D.C., and many states and food processing companies have refused to provide case totals. Other large outbreaks have emerged on farms, in fruit or vegetable processing facilities and at plants where pet food is made.

Smithfield Foods pork processing facility 1,098 Sioux Falls, S.D.
Tyson Foods pork processing facility 1,031 Waterloo, Iowa
Tyson Foods pork processing facility 900 Logansport, Ind.

Other significant clusters

The coronavirus has followed Americans wherever they gathered, spreading early this year, on cruise ships and at business conferences. As the country has reopened, new clusters have emerged at churches, restaurants and workplaces. Read more here about some of the country’s less-noticed coronavirus clusters. Because many states do not provide information about where the virus spread, no listing of clusters and local outbreaks will be complete.

About the data

In data for the United States, The Times uses reports from state, county and regional health departments. Most governments update their data on a daily basis, and report cases and deaths based on an individual’s residence.

Not all governments report these the same way. The Times uses the total of confirmed and probable counts when they are available individually or combined. To see whether a state includes probable cases and deaths, visit the individual state pages listed at the bottom of this page.

For more, see answers to our Frequently Asked Questions about the methodology behind how we are collecting this data.

The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:

April 7, 2021: Oklahoma added many deaths from previous months.

March 8, 2021: Missouri began including probable cases identified through antigen testing.

March 2, 2021: Ohio removed deaths after changing its methodology, resulting in an artificially low daily count.

Feb. 13, 2021: Ohio added many backlogged deaths from recent months.

Feb. 12, 2021: Ohio added many backlogged deaths from recent months.

Feb. 11, 2021: Ohio added many backlogged deaths from recent months.

Feb. 4, 2021: Indiana announced about 1,500 deaths from previous months after reconciling records.

Jan. 2, 2021: The daily count is artificially high because many states and local jurisdictions announced backlogged data after announcing no new data on New Year's Day.

Jan. 1, 2021: The daily count is artificially low because many states and local jurisdictions did not announce new data on New Year's Day.

Dec. 25, 2020: The daily count is artificially low because many states and local jurisdictions did not announce new data on Christmas.

Dec. 11, 2020: Texas began reporting probable cases, resulting in a one-day increase of about 44,000 cases.

Nov. 26, 2020: Cases and deaths were lower because fourteen states reported no new data, and six states had only incomplete data from select counties.

Nov. 4, 2020: Georgia began reporting probable deaths, causing a one-day increase.

Sept. 21, 2020: Officials in Texas reported thousands of undated, backlogged cases, causing a spike in the state and national data.

July 27, 2020: Texas began reporting deaths based on death certificates, causing a one-day increase.

June 30, 2020: New York City released deaths from earlier periods but did not specify when they were from.

June 25, 2020: New Jersey began reporting probable deaths, including those from earlier in the pandemic, causing a jump in the number of total deaths.

To see a detailed list of all reporting anomalies, visit the individual state pages listed at the bottom of this page.

The U.S. data includes cases and deaths that have been identified by public health officials as confirmed coronavirus patients, and also includes probable coronavirus cases and deaths when governments report them. Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely considered to be an undercount of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who meet criteria for other types of testing, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.
