The number of people diagnosed with COVID-19 grows every day throughout the U.S. and across the world. The numbers on this page are based on the latest statistics available, and are likely far lower than the actual number of cases because of limited testing. We know that at least 30 million people have contracted COVID-19 in the U.S. and more than 600,000 have died. Here’s the situation as it stands: https://www.gannett-cdn.com/experiments/usatoday/coronavirus-us-tracker/latest-numbers.html
The number of people diagnosed with COVID-19 each day plateaued after reaching a peak in late April, then peaked again in late July. This winter saw the highest numbers of cases reported thus far, with deaths surging as well.

Early in 2020, New York had the largest number of cumulative cases. But by summer, spread of the disease slowed there while transmission increased in other states. Over the winter, the number of cases accelerated in almost every state. Toggle the map below between cumulative totals and data from the last seven days to get a picture of where the virus is spreading.
Each state has experienced surges of new cases at different points over the course of the pandemic. Here are the states where case numbers grew the fastest during the past seven days compared to the preceding week:https://www.gannett-cdn.com/experiments/usatoday/coronavirus-us-tracker/top-states.html
Each state has declared the coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency, and many implemented restrictions on travel, business and public gatherings. Most states began easing or lifting those restrictions in the summer, despite the fact that case trends were on the rise in many places. When cases began increasing more quickly again in the winter, some states are re-implementing previous measures.

The U.S. became the epicenter of the global pandemic in the spring of 2020, when case totals eclipsed those of other countries experiencing large outbreaks, and has continued to see more new cases per day than almost any other nation.
