#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.


  • 5.59 million tests have been completed in the U.S. (1.7% of the population)
  • 23,000 more Americans tested positive today. 1.01 million have tested positive to date.

Yes, that's right: Today the United States of America broke 1 million cases of COVID-19. Hooray for us. Yay team.

  • Another 1,400 Americans died today. Over 56,800 have died to date.
  • The U.S. Case Fatality Rate (CFR) now stands at 5.6%.
  • The U.S. case count has increased 27% over the past week, and the total U.S. death toll has increased by 34%.

New York:

  • 826,000 tests have been completed on New Yorkers to date (4.2% of the population)
  • 4,000 more New Yorkers tested positive today. Over 298,000 have tested positive to date (1.5% of the population).
  • 348 more New Yorkers died today. 22,600 have died so far. That's 1.2 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 27% over the past week. The death toll has risen 34%.

Michigan (my home state):

  • 158,000 tests have been completed on Michiganders to date (1.6% of the population)
  • 432 more Michiganders tested positive today. 38,200 have tested positive to date (3.8 per thousand).
  • 92 more Michiganders died today. 3,400 Michiganders have died of COVID-19 to date.
  • Michigan continues to have the highest CFR of any state at 8.9%.
  • Michigan's cases have increased 19% in the past week. Our death toll has increased 38%.

Other States/Territories:

  • Rhode Island continues to have tested the highest per capita of their population (5.2%).
  • Nebraska doubled their case total over the past week. Iowa increased theirs by 86%.
  • Wyoming and Minnesota doubled their death tolls over the past week.
