Reported COVID-19 New Hospital Admissions Rate per 100,000 Population in the Past Week, by County – United States

This page shows CDC data on COVID for the past week (you have to scroll down to see the map).

The default setting tells you whether the number of people who have gone to the hospital with COVID in the last week is high, moderate, or low. If you hover over the map with your mouse, you can see that data for each county. (Note: Hospitalizations don't start to go up until a surge has been going on for about two weeks.)

If you change the settings, you can see rates for deaths, people who went to the emergency room with COVID, or test positivity.

Map

Sample map of US showing 1680 wastewater sites, captured from CDC website on August 4, 2023. Each site is color-coded, showing the level of COVID-19 virus found in samples during the past week.

This page shows CDC data on COVID-19 in wastewater.

Scroll down to see a map of all the wastewater sites that report to the CDC and the COVID-19 level at each of them.

Note: When a surge happens, virus levels in wastewater go up first - before case counts or hospitalizations.

Sample COVID-19 dashboard page for Biobot Analytics, captured on August 4, 2023. On left, line graph of COVID levels in wastewater in each of the four US regions over time. On right, US map defining each of the US regions.

Biobot Analytics is the company that provides the CDC's wastewater data.

On this page, they show a line graph that tracks virus levels in wastewater over time (you have to scroll down to see the graph). The four lines in the graph each represent a different region of the US.

Map

Sample map of US showing estimated overall COVID-19 risk, captured from the Covid-SURGE Risk Estimator on August 21, 2023. Each county is color-coded, showing whether the estimated COVID-19 risk is low, medium, or high.

This tool estimates each county's COVID risk based on:

  • Wastewater data

  • Case counts

  • Hospitalizations

  • Deaths

  • COVID vulnerability index

The tool was created by Mathematica and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. It uses data from the CDC and state sources.

Sample map of US showing estimated overall COVID-19 risk, captured from the Covid-SURGE Risk Estimator on August 21, 2023. Each county is color-coded, showing whether the estimated COVID-19 risk is low, medium, or high.

Line graphs showing levels of all things COVID:

  • Number of people in the hospital

  • Number of people in the ICU

  • Number of people sent to the hospital

  • Deaths

  • Wastewater levels

  • Testing levels

When you get to the page, it shows you the data for the entire United States. Using the menu, you can see data by state or by county.

All the data comes from the CDC and the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Flu

Map

Sample US map showing influenza-like illness (ILI) activity by state, captured from CDC FluView on August 4, 2023.

The map on this page is based on how many people see their health care providers because they have a fever plus a cough and/or a sore throat. That group of symptoms is called "influenza-like illness," or ILI.

The colors on the map tell you how much influenza-like illness has been reported in each state over the past week.

Note: The levels shown on the map are based on symptoms only, not on test results.

Virus

Map

The dashboard page of WastewaterSCAN, as downloaded on August 4, 2023. Shows a map of the US with wastewater sampling locations marked in light-blue circles.

On this page, you can look at wastewater data for lots of different viruses, including COVID-19, flu, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.1
