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 2020, 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 New York, The Times primarily relies on reports from the state, as well as health districts or county governments that often report ahead of the state. New York 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:

  • April 13, 2021: The reported number of tests likely includes many older tests.
  • March 24, 2021: After a multiday disruption in reporting data, the New York City health department reported several days’ worth of data, leading to a spike in reported cases and deaths in New York State.
  • March 22, 2021: The number of cases and deaths reported in the state was artificially low because New York City did not report new data. The city health department said the reason was ongoing issues in receiving and processing data from New York State.
  • March 21, 2021: The number of cases and deaths reported in the state was artificially low because New York City did not report new data. The city also announced that some counts for the most recent week were artificially low.
  • Aug. 20, 2020: New York City removed four previously reported deaths after reviewing records. The state reported four new deaths in other counties.
  • Aug. 6, 2020: Our database changed to record deaths of New York City residents instead of deaths that took place in New York City.
  • June 30, 2020: New York City added a backlog of deaths from unspecified dates.
  • May 6, 2020: New York State added many deaths from unspecified days after reconciling data from nursing homes and other care facilities.

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.
