Where are the COVID-19 Hotspots? Tracking State Outbreaks
There is growing concern about rising COVID-19 cases and other troubling trends in a subset of states that have reopened, and a few Governors and Mayors have either paused reopening or signaled their intention to do. Understanding in which states the pandemic is moving in the wrong, or right, direction, is critical but complex, as no single metric can tell the full story. For example, an increasing number of cases could be the result of more testing or the result of increasing transmission, or a combination of both.
The pandemic in the US has become one where the current status varies largely from state to state. Here KFF digs into the data to identify the places that are getting worse.
