Since the first case of COVID-19 was identified in December 2019, the illness has become a pandemic, touching every corner of the planet. The maps and charts below show the extent of the spread, and will be updated daily with data gathered from dozens of sources by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering.
Where COVID-19 is spreading in the U.S.
Since March, the U.S. has had more confirmed cases of COVID-19 than any other country, and the numbers continue to grow at a rapid rate. As of August 12, the U.S. had more than 5 million total reported cases and more than 166,000 COVID-19-related deaths.
The states currently facing the worst COVID-19 outbreaks
Though daily case numbers are rising throughout the U.S., the impact is not distributed equally among all states. The states to re-open first—largely because they weren’t hit hard in the early days of the pandemic—now make up the majority of those currently seeing the most new daily cases, while many of those that suffered early on have brought daily cases down to manageable levels.
Where COVID-19 has spread around the world
Some 190 countries and territories, representing every region on Earth, have now reported at least one case of the novel coronavirus. In total, there have been more than 20 million confirmed cases and will soon surpass 750,000 related deaths worldwide.
How does the U.S. compare to other countries?
The U.S. has by far surpassed every other country in the world in total confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, as well as in total confirmed related deaths.
