How Fast is the Virus Spreading?
Which Cities & States are Getting Worse?
Where are Hospitals Near Capacity?
What are the Racial Differences in the Disease?
Where areTesting & Tracing Happening?

No one is claiming that the data on the pandemic is perfect. It’s really not even found in one place. So we at Tech4America have pulled 15 interactive sources together to help you make better decisions, gain a better understanding of the pandemic, or just satisfy your curiosity. This is part of our curation of technologies to help cities and states respond to Covid-19.
