How to slow the spread of COVID–19
1 Rates are expressed as whole numbers, with values less than 10 rounded to the nearest integer, two-digit numbers rounded to nearest multiple of five, and numbers greater than 100 rounded to two significant digits.
2 Includes all cases reported by state and territorial jurisdictions (accessed 3/22/2021). The denominators used to calculate rates are based on the 2019 Vintage population, https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2019/popest-nation.htmlexternal icon.
3 Includes all hospitalizations reported through COVID-NET (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covid-net/purpose-methods.html, from 3/01/2020 through 3/13/2021, accessed on 3/23/2021). Rates are standardized to the 2020 US standard COVID-NET catchment population.
4 Includes all deaths in National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) provisional death counts (https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Provisional-COVID-19-Death-Counts-by-Sex-Age-and-S/9bhg-hcku, accessed on 3/22/2021).
