About this data The hot spots map shows the share of population with a new reported case over the last week. Data for the West Bank and Gaza was reported together by the Palestinian Health Ministry and includes only Palestinian-controlled land. Russia is reporting data for Crimea, a peninsula it annexed in 2014 in a move that led to international sanctions. Data for some countries, like the United States and France, include counts for overseas territories.

The coronavirus pandemic grew worse in March, as new cases have increased in Europe and South America.

Weekly cases per capita shows the share of population with a new reported case for each week. Weeks without a reported case are shaded gray.

The virus continues to affect every region of the world, but some countries are experiencing high rates of infection, while others appear to have mostly controlled the virus.

Where new cases are higher and staying high

Countries where new cases are higher had a daily average of at least four new cases per 100,000 people over the past week. The charts, which are all on the same scale, show daily cases per capita and are of countries with at least five million people.

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.

United States

The number of known coronavirus cases in the United States continues to grow. As of Wednesday morning, at least 32,806,600 people across every state, plus Washington, D.C., and four U.S. territories, have tested positive for the virus, according to a New York Times database, and at least 582,300 patients with the virus have died.

The New York Times is engaged in an effort to track the details of 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. 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.

About the data

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

Dec. 25, 2020: Several countries did not publish data on Dec. 25.

Dec. 10, 2020: Turkey announced the total number of reported cases, including asymptomatic cases since the end of July, reaching more than 1.7 million cases.

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.
