Editor's note: As of June 11, 2021, City & State is no longer updating this page. After compiling data on the COVID-19 pandemic every day for 15 months as a public service, the number of new cases has dwindled to a minimal level now that more than half the state has been fully vaccinated against the virus. We thank you for following this page as an up-to-date source for tracking the spread of the coronavirus.

How do you measure an outbreak? The coronavirus pandemic hit New York state harder than almost anywhere else in the world. Cases and hospitalizations appear to have hit a short-term peak and are decreasing in New York as the state’s vaccine distribution effort continues.

But the government continues to provide data that can help put the past, present and future of the pandemic in context. Consider these numbers to be a snapshot in time of an ongoing crisis.
