ABSTRACT

COVIDView: A Weekly Surveillance Summary of U.S. COVID-19 Activity, Week 36 [September 5, 2020]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Key Updates: "After declining since mid-July, the percentage of laboratory specimen testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] nationally increased slightly during week 35 but then decreased during week 36. Indicators that track influenza-like illness (ILI) and COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]-like illness (CLI) continued to decrease or remain stable (change of ≤0.1%) nationally and in all 10 regions; however, due to COVID-19 activity, one region reported levels of ILI above the region-specific baseline. Weekly hospitalization rates and mortality attributed to COVID19 declined during week 36. Mortality attributed to COVID-19 remains above the epidemic threshold."
