Why You Should Care

If you want to know if your state or county is a hot spot, here’s an excellent place to look.



This constantly updated site is considered the gold standard tracking source of Covid-19 cases for many news organizations. It’s a world map that also tracks U.S. cases by state and county (to search for state/county numbers, look in the upper right corner of the map).

The only weakness we can find is there’s usually no numbers listed under “total recoveries” from Covid-19. That likely means those numbers aren’t being reported to local and state officials.
