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 September 19, 2021. According to the CDC, it "includes deaths reported by state, local, and territorial health departments. Reporting frequency might vary by jurisdiction. This reflects the most up-to-date information received by CDC based on preliminary reporting." 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).

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 September 9, 2021, and has data from 29,851,450 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."
