    About The COVID Tracking Project

    The COVID Tracking Project is a volunteer organization launched from The Atlantic and dedicated to collecting and publishing the data required to understand the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States. Since early March, 2020, we have grown from a tiny team with a spreadsheet to a project with hundreds of volunteer data-gatherers, developers, scientists, reporters, designers, editors, and other dedicated contributors.

    Every day, we collect data on COVID-19 testing and patient outcomes from all 50 states, 5 territories, and the District of Columbia. Our dataset is currently in use by national and local news organizations across the US and by research projects and agencies worldwide. As of mid-April, our data API (which allows sites and apps to import our dataset automatically) receives about one million requests per day.

    On April 15, we launched the COVID Racial Data Tracker, a partnership between the COVID Tracking Project and the The Antiracist Research & Policy Center that collects, publishes, and analyzes racial data on the pandemic within the United States.

    As COVID-19 spreads, states are suspending visits to prison facilities and limiting criminal court proceedings. The Marshall Project rounding up the changes as they occur. To view these changes, click here.

    About The Marshall Project

    The Marshall Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization that seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice system. We achieve this through award-winning journalism, partnerships with other news outlets and public forums. In all of our work we strive to educate and enlarge the audience of people who care about the state of criminal justice.
