The Times has launched new virus tracking pages. Learn more about the changes here.
Information about the data
The data comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The number of hospital admissions per day shows the proportion of patients who have tested positive for Covid. This is more reliable than the case counts at this stage in the pandemic. Age data can be used to determine how many seniors are being affected by this virus.
Because of the lack of widespread testing, cases are usually updated weekly. They are also less consistent than in earlier pandemics. Although the test positivity rate is less consistent, both metrics can be used to help show trends in infections. The death rate is a slow but significant indicator of the virus’s impact on society.
Rate of primary series vaccination
Rate of booster bivalent
For adults and children, a bivalent booster should be taken if it has been more than two months since the last time they received it.
Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Notes: The federal government reports only test results that are positive for HIV. The figures shown represent the most current data.
Trends in reported cases, deaths, and other data by county
This table shows the top places that had the most hospitalizations per 100,000 residents within the past seven days. All counties that have a hospital service area are included in county-level hospitalization data. The charts show a 14-day variation and each chart is at its own scale.
Daily Avg. Genesee > 40,69 -15% 75% 35 4.0 -3% 0,
Tioga > 33 68 -13% 6% 8 2.0 +4% 1 2.1
Sources: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (population and demographic data); Census Bureau. Notes: The average number of Covid-19-injured patients admitted to each county's hospital is shown in the hospital admissions data. It is updated every week. The data on test positivity is only based on federally reported results and is a seven day average. Some counties do not have vaccination data. The all-time charts display data starting Jan. 21, 2020 and ending at present.
New York's vaccine trends
Primary series vaccines were either one- or two-shot regimens. The first booster shots were available in fall 2021. One year later, bivalent boosters with additional protection against Omicron variant were approved.
Rates of vaccination by county
The majority of Americans are not taking the bivalent booster, even though it is the recommended level of protection against the disease. Seniors are the most at-risk group, and have the highest coverage of bivalent booster. Some age groups are not included in the county data. In the state of California, 3 percent of vaccinations didn't specify the individual's home country.
Ulster > 76% 22% ----- -- 52%

Oct. 20, 2022 to October 26, 2022: C.D.C. The C.D.C. reported that New York City had experienced a high number of deaths on Oct. 26. This could have been due to an inability to assign a prior date to the backlog of data.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports the data on this page. The U.S. Census Bureau provides demographic and population data. Individual hospitals report hospitalization data to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It includes confirmed and suspected pediatric and adult patients.
Sometimes, governments revise data and report an increase in deaths or cases in a single day without indicating when they occurred. This can lead to irregular patterns in daily reported figures. C.D.C. As more data becomes available, the C.D.C. may update historical information. The difference in C.D.C. is measured by the 14-day change. Reporting periods that are more than two weeks apart can sometimes be 13 or 15 days apart due to holidays.
The C.D.C. did not report weekly county death and case data prior to January 2021. Sourced from The New York Times reporting.
