Factors that increase community spread and individual risk
How to slow the spread of COVID–19
1 Data source: Data reported by state and territorial jurisdictions (accessed 11/27/2020). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2000 US standard population. Calculations use only the 52% of reports with race/ethnicity; this can result in inaccurate estimates of the relative risk among groups.
2 Data source: COVID-NET (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covid-net/purpose-methods.html, accessed 11/25/2020). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2000 US standard COVID-NET catchment population.
3 Data source: NCHS provisional death counts (https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Deaths-involving-coronavirus-disease-2019-COVID-19/ks3g-spdg, accessed 11/27/2020). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2000 US standard population.
