#COVID19 Data: Nightly update of the sick and the dead.

Since tracking and analyzing data is what I'm best known for...and since I'm mostly stuck sitting in front of the computer all day whether I like it or not these days anyway...I've started my own daily COVID-19 spreadsheet.

Again, I'm not the one who compiled the data itself--many other teams with far better resources than I have are doing that--but I'm pulling their work together and adding some additional context, such as per capita info by state/territory.


  • 5.44 million tests have been completed in the U.S. (1.6% of the population)
  • 26,500 more Americans tested positive today. 987,000 have tested positive to date (3.0 per thousand)

The U.S. is going to break 1 million positive cases sometime Monday afternoon.

  • Another 1,100 Americans died today. Over 55,400 have died to date.
  • The U.S. Case Fatality Rate (CFR) now stands at 5.6%.
  • The U.S. case count has increased 29% over the past week, and the total U.S. death toll has increased by 37%.

New York:

  • 805,000 tests have been completed on New Yorkers to date (4.1% of the population)
  • 5,700 more New Yorkers tested positive today. Over 294,000 have tested positive to date (1.5% of the population).
  • 367 more New Yorkers died today. 22,275 have died so far. That's 1.1 out of every 1,000 New Yorkers.
  • New York's CFR is 7.6%, second only to the Northern Mariana Islands and Michigan.
  • New York's cases have increased 19% over the past week. The death toll has risen 22%.

Michigan (my home state):

  • 194,000 tests have been completed on Michiganders to date (1.9% of the population)
  • 575 more Michiganders tested positive today. 37,800 have tested positive to date (3.8 per thousand).
  • 41 more Michiganders died today. 3,300 Michiganders have died of COVID-19 to date.

This is the lowest daily number of fatalities in Michigan in nearly a month, I believe. While this is relatively good news, it's also important to keep in mind that Sunday numbers tend to be lower due to delayed test/reporting results, so it's possible that there will be a surge of late numbers coming in tomorrow or Tuesday.

  • Michigan continues to have the highest CFR of any state at 8.8%.
  • Michigan's cases have increased 20% in the past week. Our death toll has increased 39%.

Other States/Territories:

  • Rhode Island continues to have tested the highest per capita of their population (5.0%).
  • Nebraska doubled their case total over the past week. Iowa increased theirs by 88%.
  • Wyoming, Minnesota and Nebraska both doubled their death tolls over the past week.
