The COVID Tracking Project obtains, organizes, and publishes high-quality data required to understand and respond to the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, its website, said.

On their website, members of The COVID Tracking Project said they will continue to work until official national sources take over and publish comprehensive testing and outcomes data. They said all of their information comes from public health authorities—or, occasionally, from news reports, official press conferences, or, occasionally, tweets or Facebook updates from state public health authorities or governors.

    Frankly, I do not believe anything the government has said or is going to say about COVID-19.

    Your county list of cases adds up to 2484, not 4000. Not buying numbers in this article.

    Not buying these numbers. Sorry. I do not believe TN has 4000 cases and Southern NY has 4152.

      Please excuse math error: Southern NY (downstate) has over 100,000 cases.
