Coronavirus status in US (Mar 19 – Apr 19)

 In Event News

According to Johns Hopkins University, there are now more than 760,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US, and the death toll has exceeded 40,000. The comparison of county data from April 19th to March 19th highlights both the speed and the extent of the COVID-19 impact.

As noted last week, the growth rate in new cases is beginning to decline. New York continues to report slower new case rates and its’ most recent daily death toll, 507, was down almost 10% from the previous day and represented the lowest total in more than two weeks. The focus is now shifting to projecting when states and regions will re-open.

We generated these maps using USAFacts county-level COVID-19 data from March 19th to April 19th in the EigenPrism platform.

The video shows three different perspectives on the distribution of coronavirus cases in different US Counties:

  • On the leftConfirmed Cases by County: maps the confirmed cases typically reported in the news and top websites.
  • In the middleConfirmed Cases per Capita: visualizes cases for the vastly differing population densities between counties.
  • On the rightGrowth of New Cases: shows counties with more than 10 cases. The Growth factor greater than 100% suggest steepening growth, while less than 100% suggest a flattening growth curve.

Taken together, the above three perspectives provide useful context to access the relative impact across different US geographies.

Manage Pandemic Risk in Real-Time

To assess the pandemic risk, apply the geospatial layers over a schedule or portfolio of insured locations, or a listing of employees. The footprints are available for use in EigenAlerts, EigenProfile Impact Summary reports, and in Exposure Analytics for complete analysis.

  • Daily updates
  • Users can set Alerts for notifications (and view in the mobile app)
  • Intensity value represents number of confirmed cases by best available resolution

Note: The number of confirmed cases by country, is reported at the country, state/province & county level since 22nd Jan. Also, the highest level of reported resolution is used where possible.
