COVID-19 Statistics: Daily Update, April 29
As some states begin to loosen their restrictions these graphs show current cumulative cases as well as the five-day trailing average of new cases, per state, per region. As with our previous updates, these differentiations are important, as states can have very different numbers of confirmed cases, and their curves over time can follow very different trajectories. The differences continue to be notable.
While we continue to see linear growth in cumulative cases in most states, the good news is that the five day trailing averages of newly confirmed cases is declining in several states (see, for example, New York, Louisiana, Michigan, Washington). Trends like these are evidence that the curve is flattening in at least these states. Five day trailing averages, however, do not yet meet the 14 day decline guideline for reopening, although certain states appear to be closing in on that threshold.
How we can help.
