Sum COVID

Some US data summaries.

Total Cases, Deaths, and Case Fatality Rate

This data is from the CDC's COVID Tracker Data as of August 1, 2022. These totals are since January 21, 2020.

Note that the case fatility rate ("CFR") reflects deaths as a percentage of cases. It does not attempt to factor for every person who has had COVID-19, such as the untested and undiagnosed.

Total Cases
91,198,391
Total Deaths
1,025,363
CFR
1.12%
Survival Rate
98.88%

Case Fatality and Survival Rates by Age Group

This data is from the CDC's COVID-19 Case Surveillance Public Use Data API, last updated on July 7, 2022, and has data from 77,544,202 cases. The case fatality rate ("CFR") was calculated as the deaths in the age group divided by the number of cases in that age group. The survival rate is the number of cases that did not result in a death, or "1 minus the death rate."

Deaths and Other Medical Conditions

The CDC's COVID-19 Case Surveillance Public Use Data API (last updated on July 7, 2022 reflecting 77,544,202 cases with 863,466 deaths) presents the presence of underlying comorbidity or disease as a field with the possible values of: yes, no, unknown, or missing. 668,717 (~82%) of the case data with a death has this field marked as "Missing" or "Unknown."

There are 146,399 deaths in the data with either a value of "Yes" (the death had an underlying comorbidity) or "No" (the death had no comorbidity). Of these, 125,285 (~86%) had an underlying comorbidity or disease. 21,114 (~14%) did not.

Daily Deaths and Cases Over Time

This data was downloaded directly from the CDC's COVID Tracker Daily and Total Trends on August 1, 2022. The last date with data from the CDC is July 31, 2022.

Cases per Day

Seven Day Moving Average CFR

The Seven Day Moving Average CFR is the case fatality rate based on the seven day moving average of cases and deaths. The calculation is seven day moving average of deaths / seven day moving average of cases .

COVID and Flu Deaths

This data comes from the CDC's chart Pneumonia, Influenza, and COVID-19 Mortality from the National Center for Health Statistics Mortality Surveillance System. The data was last updated with totals through the week ending July 2, 2022.

Death by Select Causes, Compared

This data is published by the National Center for Health Statistics and hosted on the CDC's API as the data set Monthly Provisional Counts of Deaths by Select Causes, 2020-2022. It was lasted updated on July 6, 2022.

All Cause Mortality in Pfizer Six Month Safety and Efficacy Study

This is the data from Table S4 | Causes of Death from Dose 1 to Unblinding (Safety Population, ≥16 Years Old) from Pfizer's Six Month Safety and Efficacy of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine , and that the FDA disclosed on page 23 of its Summary Basis for Regulatory Action dated November 8, 2021. Pfizer had reported 15 vaccinated deaths and 14 placebo deaths, with causes of death broken out. When the FDA released their Summary Basis for Regulatory Action, they reported 21 vaccinated deaths and 17 placebo deaths, without reconciliation to Pfizer's version of the study released publicly. Both the FDA and Pfizer reports had statements to the effect that none of these deaths were considered related to BNT162b2.

Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

The data for the graph below was exported from the CDC WONDER system of VAERS data. The dataset includes all data processed as of July 22, 2022. It was downloaded on August 1, 2022.

The graph below displays total deaths reported to VAERS by year for any vaccine. To replicate the data below, visit the request system, agree to terms at the bottom, click "VAERS Data Search" in the middle of the page, group results by "Event Category" and "Year Reported" in Step 1, and ensure "All Locations" is selected in step 4. The CDC WONDER system for VAERS data will display a table, and only exports to a text file. It may be helpful to disable "Show Totals" before running the report.

Body Mass Index and COVID-19 Outcomes

On March 8, 2021, the CDC published a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report with data from PHD-SR ("a large, hospital-based, all-payer database") containing data on COVID-19 patient outcomes and Body Mass Index (BMI). The pool of people selected for the CDC's study included 3,242,649 people 18 years or older who had their height and weight documented while receiving emerge in 2020. Of those, 148,494 patients were diagnosed with COVID-19.

The graph below shows the number of patients from the study that were diagnosed with COVID-19 ("Cases"), the number of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who were hospitalized ("Hospitalized"), and the number of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who died ("Death"), grouped by their BMI classification ("Underweight", "Healthy Weight", "Obesity", and "Severe Obesity").

BMI and COVID-19 Patient Outcomes

The chart below shows each patient outcome of each BMI classification as a percentage of the total patient outcomes. For reference, the total number of patients in the PHD-SR database from the CDC's report is displayed as the, "Total Cohort in Database." These were all inpatient and emergency department patients who had their height and weight measured.

BMI and COVID-19 Patient Outcomes As Percentage of Total Outcome

The chart below shows the percentage make-up of BMI classification for each COVID-19 patient outcome, as well as the percentage make-up of BMI classification for all patients in the PHD-SR dataset with their height and weight measured.
