The COVID-19 Pandemic Map

Op-Ed: The pandemic, Hurricane Ian and me — a doctor whose friends say I have PTSD.

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, the reality of what’s happening looks different every day, from what the U.S. government is saying (which is not very helpful) to what you can see happening on this pandemic map at the University of Virginia’s Center for Urban Health.

On Monday we learned that a record number of people had been tested for coronavirus — almost 70,000 tests in just five days.

We learned that on April 11, a man in a nursing home in Illinois died of COVID-19, and that there were 11,000 cases in the U.S. on that date.

More than 1,000 people in New York City alone have died of COVID-19, including at least one in our own community.

And on Wednesday, we learned that the U.S. death toll was climbing, and that it was getting higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher, and higher.

Now there are more than 46,000 confirmed cases in the U.S., according to Johns Hopkins University.

We can go through it and see how many confirmed cases there have been in each state, but if you’ve followed our reporting on the coronavirus pandemic, you already know it has been growing so quickly that every day is like a different world, and for a whole lot of people, that’s what it has been like.

The map that the University of Virginia Center for Urban Health has published as part of their coronavirus tracking has been an eye-opener.

It shows each county in every state with a number of confirmed cases, and it shows where the cases have been occurring the most in each county.

As we reported yesterday, there’s a red arrow pointing to a place called Charleston County, South Carolina.

That’s one of the counties where there are the most confirmed cases.
