About this dataFor 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. For hot spots: 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.

The New York Times is engaged in a comprehensive effort to track details about every reported 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.

New reported deaths by day in North Dakota
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.
Since March, The Times has paid special attention to cases in nursing homes, food processing plants, correctional facilities and now at colleges and universities. Information on cases linked to these places comes from official releases by governments, companies and institutions directly. The Times is publishing lists of groupings of 50 more cases related to a specific site, workplace, school or event.
|Cases connected to||Cases||Location|
|+ Colleges and universities||1,309 cases at 11 schools|
|+ Nursing homes||206 cases at 3 facilities|
|+ Other||171 cases at 1 cluster|
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:
May 25: 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.
June 23: The number of new cases reported by North Dakota was artificially low because of a temporary software issue.
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.

What you can do
Experts’ understanding of how the Covid-19 works is growing. It seems that there are four factors that most likely play a role: how close you get to an infected person; how long you are near that person; whether that person expels viral droplets on or near you; and how much you touch your face afterwards. Here is a guide to the symptoms of Covid-19.
You can help reduce your risk and do your part to protect others by following some basic steps:
Keep your distance from others. Stay at least six feet away from people outside your household as much as possible.
Wear a mask outside your home. A mask protects others from your germs, and it protects you from infection as well. The more people who wear masks, the more we all stay safer.
Wash your hands often. Anytime you come in contact with a surface outside your home, scrub with soap for at least 20 seconds, rinse and then dry your hands with a clean towel.
Avoid touching your face. The virus can spread when our hands come into contact with the virus, and we touch our nose, mouth or eyes. Try to keep your hands away from your face unless you have just recently washed them.
Here’s a complete guide on how you can prepare for the coronavirus outbreak.
