About this data Sources: State and local health agencies (cases, deaths); U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (tests, hospitalizations). The seven-day average is the average of a day and the previous six days of data. Currently hospitalized is the most recent number of patients with Covid-19 reported by hospitals in the state for the four days prior. 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. Tests represent the number of individual P.C.R. viral test specimens tested by laboratories and state health departments and reported to the federal government.

Outbreak clusters

Since March, The Times has paid special attention to cases in the types of places with some of the worst outbreaks, like nursing homes, food processing plants and correctional facilities.

About the data

In data for North Dakota, The Times primarily relies on reports from the state. North Dakota typically releases new data each day. Weekend counts may be lower because fewer sources report to the state. The state reports cases and deaths based on a person’s permanent or usual residence.

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

  • Feb. 9, 2021: North Dakota removed cases deemed inconclusive after identifying a laboratory testing malfunction.
  • Dec. 8, 2020: North Dakota began reporting probable cases identified through antigen testing.
  • June 23, 2020: The number of new cases reported by North Dakota was artificially low because of a temporary software issue.
  • May 25, 2020: The state announced that due to a laboratory equipment malfunction they were removing 82 positive results from their total case count, pending a retest of the samples.

The tallies on this page include probable and confirmed cases and deaths.

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.
