ABSTRACT

COVIDView: A Weekly Surveillance Summary of U.S COVID-19 Activity, Week 28 [July 11, 2020]   [open pdf - 1024KB]

From the Key Updates: "Nationally, levels of influenza-like illness (ILI) are low overall, but high for this time of year. Changes in indicators that track COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]-like illness (CLI) and laboratory confirmed SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] were inconsistent during the most recent week, with some increasing but others decreasing. This could be due to changes in healthcare seeking behavior around the holiday that occurred during week 27. However, in several regions, those indicators increased compared to the previous week (week 26), suggesting an increasing trend in many areas of the country. Hospitalizations rates, which typically lag behind illness indicators, show an increasing trend. Mortality attributed to COVID-19 decreased compared to last week but is currently above the epidemic threshold and will likely increase as additional death certificates are processed."
