COVIDview: A Weekly Surveillance Summary of U.S. COVID-19 Activity, Week 29 [July 18, 2020] [open pdf - 1MB]
From the Document: "Nationally, levels of influenza-like illness (ILI) are below baseline, but higher than typically seen at this time of year. Indicators that track COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]-like illness (CLI) and laboratory confirmed SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] showed decreases from week 28 to week 29 nationally; however, there were regional differences. Areas of the country with high levels of CLI and laboratory confirmed SARS-CoV-2 in recent weeks (Regions 4 [South East], 6 [South Central] and 9 [South West/ Coast]) are starting to show signs of decreasing activity whereas other parts of the country (Regions 7 [Midwest], 5 [Central] and 8 [Mountain]) are increasing. Hospitalization rates show an increasing trend. Mortality attributed to COVID-19 remains above the epidemic threshold and increased slightly during the first two weeks of July after declining for 11 weeks since mid-April."
