Updates and Data 

Last Updated: 06/04/2020

General comments: We provide these summary data in the spirit of transparency and open data sharing.  Given the relatively small number of reported cases and preliminary nature of these reports, we do not recommend these data be used to inform clinical decisions at this time. Additionally, as many mild cases of COVID-19 do not undergo testing, these data may over-represent more severe cases in which COVID-19 testing was performed.
