COVID-19 in US
Heatmap of ‘Total Tests Conducted Daily’ in 50 states, from March 1st to June 21st


New York (NY)

  • The Daily Positive Cases appears to be low in March, but starting April beginning there was an exponential rise. One of the reasons for the low daily positive cases, as per the heatmap, can be the fact that the number of tests conducted in March were significantly low.
  • The Daily Positive Cases and Daily Deaths were significantly high during the month of April and May, which is when the state issued the lockdown order and banned international travel.
  • Mid May onwards the number of cases started to decrease and June 8th the state scheduled it’s Phase-I reopening.
