Our beloved, The COVID Tracking Project, ceased operations as of March 7th, 2021. This major project, propitiously and generously started by The Atlantic magazine, was the only comprehensive, publicly available source when the world was desperate to understand what was happening. New sources arose over the months, but TCTP was still a primary source for most of the places that provide data online.
Since the bracing news of TCTP's closure, we have been busy scouting out a new a new source of quality data, and adapting the precision tool that is PlagueData.com, to display it to you. Our new source is John Hopkins University - Whiting Engineering School. The integration work was completed on Friday, April 9th. You are looking at it! (Well, if you scroll a little bit.)
As of March 7th, COVID data supplied by Johns Hopkins University
The COVID Trackin Project API used by PlagueData.com, and many other outlets, including Johns Hopkins, ceased updating as of March 7th. We have transitioned to a new, reliable, data source provided by: Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering.

Does a state's politics impact its outcomes?
Now you can filter the graphs based on political party, and not just by Red State/Blue State (i.e. how residents historically vote). Does the state's governor have more impact than its voters, or its legislature? Or does the politics have any impact at all on what should be a non-partisan crisis.
PlagueData.com now lets you show results based on the party of these entities: Voters, Governor, State House, State Senate. Filter based on any or all of the selected entities matching a party.
Simply click the "Politics" button in the State selector, choose your entities, and click Red or Blue!Check it out now!
