Mayo Clinic releases new COVID-19 tracking tool

Data includes the total number of cases by county and state

ROCHESTER, Minn (WKBT) – As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, some areas of the country are seeing large surges, while other regions see their numbers declining.

These trends make it difficult for researchers to get consistent data.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester is introducing a new tracking tool that will feature the latest COVID-19 data for every county, in all 50 states and Washington DC.

Data includes the total number of cases by county and state, new cases per day, the positive test rate and the fatality rate, presented with trends over time and Mayo Clinic guidance on how to take action.

“We feel that this tracker, looking at cases and future cases at the county level. as well as the links for to other information, will give patients some assurances and knowledge of what’s going on in COVID and what they can expect,” said Dr. Henry Ting, the Enterprise Chief Value Officer at Mayo Clinic
