COVID-19 deaths are up by 10% or more in 25 states across the US. Today is the third time deaths have been above 4,000. Block map of US states showing change in 7-day average death
Starting today, we will be capturing Oregon’s data the day after it is published, as they regularly update their COVID-19 pages and dashboards after we release our daily update. We have shifted their entire timeseries accordingly.
Today we have removed most state-level “recovered” data from our website, though the values remain in our API and will continue to be updated. We have shifted to reporting only hospital discharges for the 8 states that report this metric.
We have taken this step because “recovered” values are largely estimates of non-infectiousness that do not account for the fact that many people suffer long-term health consequences after contracting COVID-19, and because no two states define the metric in the same way.
Unfortunately, we just don’t know how many people have recovered from COVID-19, and in the absence of national data standards, we might never know. Read more about these issues at covidtracking.com/analysis-updat…

After holiday disruptions, our core metrics stabilize at different rates. We believe the bulk of holiday-related case and death backlogs have been reported, but that we're only now seeing a lot of the test backlogs, hence today's new 7-day average record.
As the data normalizes, the U.S. is still reporting more than 200,000 cases and 3,000 deaths per day. These are the highest levels of the pandemic.

A month since COVID-19 vaccine distribution began, it is still impossible for the public and the media to track the rollout of vaccines in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other long-term-care facilities in most states.

As a reminder, less than 1 percent of US residents live in long-term-care facilities—but they make up at least 37% of the nation’s total COVID-19 deaths.

Last week, South Carolina released federal vaccine data that shows which long-term-care facilities have received doses. They are the only state providing this transparency on the vaccine process.

The CDC and other states should follow their lead.
