Regional Trends in US COVID-19 Data (May 25)

 In Event News

During May, while some hard hit areas such as New York began to show improvements in the number of daily new cases, rural areas showed the opposite – an increase in the number of daily new cases. Shown on a per capita basis, an example of this trend can clearly be seen in Wilkes County, North Carolina.

At the end of April, Wilkes County had a low rate of 35 daily new cases; this climbed rapidly during to just under 400 new cases per day by May 18.

Daily New Cases Per Capita by US county – updated as of May 25, 2020. Counties in yellow have 1 – 10 confirmed coronavirus cases per million, while areas with no color have less than 1 case per million. For developing planning scenarios, these areas may be of interest, as they are under the IMHE‘s suggested threshold of 1 infection per million to begin easing social distancing restrictions, while avoiding a resurgence of infections via active case detection and contact tracing.
