State of New York Coronavirus Updates – Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Daily Press Conference
Governor Cuomo gives a daily (7 days a week) press conference at 10:30AM CST (11:30AM in NY). I’ve been watching this on the State of New York’s website. Get a wider view of what is going on. CNN also broadcasts it but nimrod anchors start talking before the press conference is over.
This website shows the number of people tested.
Lists cases by zip code. Any zip code with less than five cases is not listed.
This provides slightly more detailed data suburban Cook County. It seems to only work sporadically.
The Trib has a new webpage where they’re tracking statewide cases. It’s still only by County because of state restrictions on the release of data.
State of Illinois COVID-19 webpage
The State of Illinois has a dedicated webpage. The State of Illinois provides little detailed data compared to some other states, so you will only see data at the county level.
Contains worldwide data and you can drill down to Illinois data in charts and maps.
This website gives current statistics as well as projections, by state, of where we are at in the crisis and their estimates (changing constantly) of when we might reach peak cases in Illinois. This is what the federal and state governments are using for their estimates.
This interactive Scoreboard, updated daily, was created to” empower organizations to measure and understand the efficacy of social distancing initiatives at the local level”. I just clicked on Illinois on the map and the ratings come up on the left. The data is collected from “tens of millions” of mobile phones. Obviously the creators of this site can’t see the hoards who would ordinarily spend their non-working hours watching tv and Netflix who have suddenly taken up walking, running and biking and who are still using the parks, Lakefront Trail, forest preserves etc.
