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 December 1, 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).

Total Cases
48,497,243
Total Deaths

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 November 16, 2021, and has data from 37,532,072 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 November 16, 2021 reflecting 37,532,072 cases with 631,376 deaths) presents the presence of underlying comorbidity or disease as a field with the possible values of: yes, no, unknown, or missing. 505,914 (~80%) of the case data with a death has this field marked as "Missing" or "Unknown."

There are 125,462 deaths in the data with a value of "Yes" (the death had an underlying comorbidity) or "No" (the death had no comorbidity in addition to COVID-19). Of these, 116,160 (~93%) had an underlying comorbidity or disease. 9,302 (~7%) did not.

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 November 19, 2021. It was downloaded on December 2, 2021.

The graph below displays total deaths reported to VAERS by year for any vaccine. To replicate the data for deaths, visit the request system, agree to terms at the bottom, click "VAERS Data Search" in the middle of the page, group results by Year Reported in Step 1, ensure "All Locations" is selected in step 4, and select "Death" as the Event Category in step 5. However, the data for all charts was generated by selecting "Event Category" and by "Year Reported" in step 1. The CDC WONDER system for VAERS data will display a table, and only exports to a `.txt` file.
