US States in the Red Zone Dashboard

US States in the "Red Zone"

An unpublicized document prepared for the White House Coronavirus Task Force was obtained by the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit newsroom based in Washington, D.C. In the report, colors are assigned to each state and county in the U.S. based on various metrics including new cases per 100k people per week and diagnostic test result positivity rate. Jeremy Blaney uses COVID Tracking Project data to visualize each of the report's metrics on which states are in the "red zone."

Connect to COVID-19 activity data

Tableau is aware of the Federal government's decision that all hospitals submit COVID-19 patient information directly to the Department of Health and Human Services, versus the Centers for Disease Control. While there is no immediate impact to the data made available through the Tableau COVID-19 Data Hub, we will continue to evaluate any potential changes. We will work to ensure that this data stream continues to be a valuable, reliable resource for decision making.

The data stream, aggregated from the New York Times, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the Public Health Agency of Canada continues to be a vital resource for corporate and government decision makers as they navigate the global pandemic.

As you use COVID-19 data, it’s important to remember that, while the underlying data comes from trusted sources, it’s difficult to estimate an accurate count for the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide because of the vastly different approaches to both testing and reporting. Also remember, even data visualizations based on accurate data can be misleading.
