Current data on COVID-19

May 22, 2020

By Mary Beth Versaci

Coronavirus iconCases of the coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, continue to climb in the U.S. and around the world.

The numbers in the first table below are based on May 21 reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.) and World Health Organization (global).

CDC data include both confirmed and probable cases and deaths, and the agency updates its website daily with data reported as of 4 p.m. Eastern time the previous day. According to the CDC, it does not know the exact number of COVID-19 illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths for various reasons, including that COVID-19 can cause mild illness, symptoms might not appear immediately, there are delays in reporting and testing, not everyone who is infected gets tested or seeks medical care, and there may be differences in how states and territories confirm numbers in their jurisdictions.

WHO COVID-19 situation reports present official counts of confirmed COVID-19 cases. There could be differences between WHO reports and other sources of COVID-19 data that use different inclusion criteria and data cutoff times.

The numbers in the second table were reported by Johns Hopkins University as of 9 a.m. Central time May 22.

Johns Hopkins uses data from the WHO, CDC, European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China, DXY, coronavirus.1point3acres.com, worldometers.info/coronavirus, BNO News, the COVID Tracking Project, state and national government health departments, and local media reports. The publicly available data from these sources do not always agree, and Johns Hopkins frequently updates the data on its website, which could result in higher case numbers than may be available from other sources.

Check this page daily for the latest COVID-19 data available from the CDC, WHO and Johns Hopkins. Updates will be made in the afternoon Monday-Friday. For additional COVID-19 resources from the ADA, visit the ADA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Center for Dentists.
