WSU COVID-19 Tracker


This data visualizer plots publicly-available data on diagnosed cases and deaths from COVID-19 at the county level with a focus on differences between Metro and NonMetro counties.
Data on cases and deaths are standardized per 100,000 county residents, based on US Census data. For cases, we have applied the cut-offs for levels recommended by the Harvard Global Health Institute.
We update the visualization daily and provide daily case and death statistics based on a moving 7-day average. We also use the moving daily statistics to compute changes in both cases and deaths, on a percentage basis, for the preceding 7 days.
