The COVID Tracking Project
+ Your AuthorsArchive @COVID19Tracking We try to provide the most comprehensive state-level coronavirus data. Housed at @TheAtlantic. Jul. 07, 2020 1 min read

Our daily update is published. Some of the numbers are coming back up after the dip over the holiday weekend. States reported about 52K new cases today.

653K new tests were reported today.

919 deaths were reported today, after several days of unusually low death figures.

We expect the data for new cases, tests, and deaths to continue to show the effects of the long weekend for at least another day or two. States that reported partial data or no data Friday through Sunday will be posting big numbers.

Meanwhile, even with partial data, the new-case curves continue to rise sharply in the South and West.

The national number of people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 is still climbing, even without data from the big outbreak in Florida.

(Last week, FL said current hospitalization data was on the way, but we haven’t seen it reported yet. )

Seven states saw the number of people hospitalized rise by 100 or more today. In Texas, this figure is almost 5 times higher than it was 30 days ago on June 7 (1,878 to 9,286).

California, Florida, and Texas combined accounted for 45% of all new cases today.

Lastly, apologies to the great state of Idaho, which is indeed publishing current COVID-19 hospitalization data, and which we unfairly criticized yesterday. Thank you, Idaho! 

As always, you can find all the data at , and now you can explore it on the site at
