The COVID Tracking Project website says it obtains, organizes, and publishes high-quality data required to understand and respond to the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States.
We will do this work until official national sources take over and publish comprehensive testing and outcomes data.
The project says its data comes from state/district/territory public health authorities — or, occasionally, from trusted reporting, press conferences, or (occasionally) tweets or Facebook updates from state public health authorities or governors.
