COVID-19: Data

Latest Data

NEW: Our new layout of COVID-19 data focuses on:

  • Latest Data: What we have seen in the city recently.
  • Trends: Patterns in historical trends since February.
  • Totals: How the pandemic has affected people differently based on location and demographic groups.

Our updated section includes new charts and information, as well as all of our previously displayed data.

This page shows the latest data on COVID-19 in New York City. We update data every day in the early afternoon. You can also download our data and technical notes on Github.

The table below compares the most recent week of key data to the weekly averages for the last four weeks.

Percent Positive and Test Rate by ZIP Code

These data show the percent of people tested who tested positive, by ZIP code, for the most recent seven days of available data. The borough comparison charts include data by ZIP code from the past three months.

The data also show the rate of people tested during the most recent seven days. A neighborhood is considered to have adequate testing when at least 260 residents per 100,000 have been tested in the past week. This metric of adequate testing may change depending on future testing data.

New people positive does not include people who previously tested positive. All data are incomplete. Data will be backfilled as new data are reported.

Daily Cases, Hospitalizations and Deaths

The charts below show the daily number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths over the past three months citywide and for each borough. Due to delays in reporting, which can take as long as a week, recent data are incomplete.

Percent Positive Citywide and by Age

The percent of people tested who test positive can show if we are lowering community transmission.

Virus (Diagnostic) Testing

A virus (diagnostic) test shows if you have COVID-19. Our data on cases, hospitalizations and confirmed deaths reflect people who received a positive virus test.

The charts below show the daily number of people who were tested over the past three months.

Emergency Department Visits

These charts show people who visited the emergency department with clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19 illness (including flu-like illnesses and pneumonia) during the past three months, and those who were then admitted to the hospital. While some of these people did not test positive, these charts can be an early warning sign for community transmission of COVID-19.

About the Data: All of the data on these pages were collected by the NYC Health Department. Data will be updated daily but are preliminary and subject to change.

Reporting Lag: Our data are published with a three-day lag, meaning that the most recent data in today's update are from three days before.

This lag is due to the standard delays (up to several days) in reporting to the Health Department a new test, case, hospitalization or death. Given the delay, our counts of what has happened in the most recent few days are artificially small. We delay publishing these data until more reports have come in and the data are more complete.

Health Inequities in Data: Differences in health outcomes among racial and ethnic groups are due to long-term structural racism, not biological or personal traits.

Structural racism — centuries of racist policies and discriminatory practices across institutions, including government agencies, and society — prevents communities of color from accessing vital resources (such as health care, housing and food) and opportunities (such as employment and education), and negatively affects overall health and well-being. The disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on New Yorkers of color highlights how these inequities negatively influence health outcomes.
