More than 28 million people in the US have confirmed coronavirus infections and more than 498,000 have died from COVID-19. Tens of thousands of new cases are reported nationwide every day. Explore the trends in your state in the graphs below.
Display the data on a Heat map (immediately below), Curve diagrams, on table of government trends over four weeks or a map of total cases and deaths.
The above map shows the risk of infection in each state based on new daily cases per capita. The consortium of researchers and public health experts who developed these risk levels advises states in the red category to give home stay contracts. They advise orange states to consider home orders, along with increased testing and contact tracing. Yellow states must maintain social distancing and mask use, and all states should continue to conduct testing and contact tracing.
To compare state outbreaks, the graph above graphs trend lines for average new daily cases and deaths based on the total history of each state. This type of visualization shows the daily growth or decline of a state in relation to the total size of its outbreak.
When both the number of new and the total number of cases and deaths increase rapidly, the curves bend upward. As new cases and deaths slow down, the curves align or bend. In New York, the curve rose sharply before hitting over 170,000 cases in April. The incidence decreased from about 10,000 per day in mid-April to below 900 per day for most of the summer before starting to rise in the fall.
Search the map above to see the total and per capita across the country for both new confirmed cases and reported deaths from COVID-19. New York was the original epicenter of the pandemic in the United States. As of mid-October, California, Florida, and Texas surpass New York for total cases, although New York still has the highest total number of deaths.

To show trends, the following table shows the change in the average number of new cases per day in each state, week-to-week over the past 28 days. States marked in shades of red show growing outbreaks; those in shades of green decrease.
The graphics on this page are derived from data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University from a variety of sources, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. the World Health Organization; national, state, and local health departments; 1point3acres; and local media reports.
The JHU team automates the uploading of data and regularly checks them for anomalies. This can lead to occasional data discrepancies on this page as the JHU team fixes anomalies and updates its feeds. State recovery data is currently unavailable. There may be a discrepancy between what you see here and what you see on your local health department’s website. The numbers shown do not include cases on cruise lines.
Fluctuations in numbers can occur as health authorities review old cases and / or update their methods. The JHU team keeps a list of such changes.
