ABSTRACT

COVIDView: A Weekly Surveillance Summary of U.S. COVID-19 Activity, Week 33 [August 15, 2020]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Key Updates: "Nationally, levels of influenza-like illness (ILI) are below baseline but higher than typically seen at this time of year. Indicators that track ILI and COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]-like illness (CLI) and the percentage of laboratory tests positive for SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] have continued to decrease nationally since mid-July. Regionally, from week 32 to week 33, indicators that track ILI were decreasing or stable (change of ≤0.1%) in nine of ten regions of the country, an indicator that tracks CLI decreased in all regions, and the percentage of laboratory tests positive for SARS-CoV-2 decreased or remained the same in nine of ten regions. Weekly hospitalization rates and mortality attributed to COVID-19 declined during week 33 but may change as more data for admissions and deaths occurring during recent weeks are received. Mortality attributed to COVID-19 remains above the epidemic threshold."
