(NEXSTAR) — The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Alabama and other U.S. states has surged across the country as more Americans are being tested for the virus. This interactive database reflects the approximate number of coronavirus tests conducted in each state in the United States to date.
As of Tuesday, March 30, the U.S. now has more than 186,000 infections and 3,800 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University, while around the world 854,000 people are infected. The true number of cases is thought to be considerably higher because of testing shortages and mild illnesses that have gone unreported.
The numbers in this data set are approximate and are based on current public information. The data is collected directly from each state’s official department of health website.
The coronavirus pandemic is an evolving crisis. This database will be updated around 5 p.m. every day to keep the numbers as accurate as possible.
