New York City is reported as a single entity.


(Logarithms make it easier to see growth rates instead of raw numbers. Find out more at A Different Way to Chart the Spread of Coronavirus or How to read a log scale. Note that I'm using log 2 not log 10 as in the NY Times because I'm interested in tracking doubling.

New York Known COVID-19 Cases Per 100K

This app is still in beta. Automated data update is still a work in progress.

Data for this application is downloaded daily from the New York State Department of Public Health Web site. Due to a problem with the scraper several days after launch, some historical data was re-created with data from USA Facts.

As with all U.S. Covid-19 data, these tables and graphs are severely undercounting the actual number of cases. That's due to the woeful inadequacy of testing. Many people who have symptoms still can't be tested, let alone most people who might be carrying the virus but don't have symptoms. Please always keep this in mind when you view this data.

This application was created by Sharon Machlis with the R programming language and R packages shiny, data.table, ggplot2, plotly, leaflet, DT, and glue, among others. It wouldn't have been possible without the incredible contributions of the R core team and R package authors to make this free platform possible. (Any and all errors in the data presentation are, however, mine alone.)
